Okay so that’s my fantasy event. The real event is at The Abbey, with the beeeautiful Belle Plaine and all your favorite NDP¬† MPs, who are in town for the NDP’s annual caucus retreat. Charlie Angus, Timmins Ontario MP and former front man for the Grievious Angels will be there to play a few tunes, and if the party’s good — and how can it not be — Jack Layton may come too!

This event is sponsored by my future MP, Palliser NDP candidate Noah Evanchuk and is being held as a fundraiser in support of striking UFCW workers from XL Meat Packers (on second thought, maybe a cuddle party wouldn’t be such a great idea.) Tonight, The Abbey, 2124 Albert Street 7:30 – 11:30. Be there or be square.
