Liberals cancel B.C. convention, clearing way for leadership vote if Dion fails
The story says nothing of the sort really, the Liberals just canceled their Dec. convention, ostensibly because it would be too soon after the federal election.
And then this, an entire story about the plane chartered by the Liberal party:
IN THE AIR ON ‘PROFESS-AIR' — A huge cheer erupted as Stéphane Dion's campaign plane, a 30-year-old clunker of a Boeing 737, rolled fast enough down the runway to lift off into the air.
there were many jokes about the plane's ability or inability to fly, including stories that the planned route from Hamilton to Saint John was going over Lake Ontario and along the St. Lawrence River to avoid flying over highly populated cities, such as Toronto.
Some reporters prayed on the runway.
It landed safely and smoothly.
