Bloggers will be officially accredited at the Montreal LPC Biennial Convention

The official word has come from the LPC: bloggers will be accredited to the Convention, and they are inviting applications for accreditation. Since they’ve sent out a press release, and the form is publicly available on the convention web site, I don’t think they will mind me re-posting it below (also because anyone, not just Liberal supporting blogs, can apply.. but they of course reserve the right to decide who attends. That said, I hope some non-Liberal bloggers or non-partican bloggers are approved).

The next big question for bloggers (yours truly included) is whether the travel and accommodation costs are worth covering a non-leadership convention. This will be primarily a conventions where passing policy will be the main purpose – there will also be constitutional amendments possibly, and elections for party offices.

I’m undecided as of yet, but it might not be a bad convention to cover.. particularly to give publicity to a party’s policies of a party that often gets criticized that we/they have no policy. I’ll say this: I was at the LPC Leadership convention in 2006 in Montreal – the first ever one that accredited bloggers, and I had a blast. We got to experience a convention flavour, and we got to meet folks like Andrew Coyne, Paul Wells, and Kady O’Malley – back when bloggers were looked at with a curious eye, and social media was just getting going. Now of course, a lot of these folks either also blog or are very active on social media.

As previously stated, the LPC Details/Announcement is below
