This might explain a lot. When I got home from work today, there was a letter from the Liberal Party of Canada in my mailbox, in a fairly large envelope.
My first thought was, hey these guys are not down and out. This is a very aggressive move. Hit your mailing list, ask for help, get the recovery started now.
But alas it was a letter from Michael Ignatieff, explaining that he was working hard on the campaign bus and that the numbers were starting to climb and could I send some money to help the party.
Well at least I saved a hundred bucks.
