For Immediate Release
February 12, 2007
MONTREAL (QC) - Always at the service of the citizens in all of Quebec’s regions, the LPC(Q) is proud to announce the launch of 75 riding websites, that is to say one micro site for each of its 75 riding associations throughout Quebec.
Each of these riding sites are accessible directly from the LPC(Q) new website, at www.lpcq.ca, in the top left section “Find Your Riding”. You can also download a list of all riding domain names by clicking HERE.
Easy to update, linked up to the website of the Liberal Party of Canada (Quebec), these 75 riding association micro sites will allow federal Liberals in Quebec to share their ideas and better communicate with one another. They will also allow the Liberal Party of Canada and its Leader, the Honourable Stéphane Dion, to better respond to the expectations of Quebecer in all of Quebec’s regions. At last, but not the least, these 75 websites will help Liberal associations to better communicate the values of the party and those of its leader, to develop ever more innovative and progressive policy resolutions, to recruit new members, to get up funds and of course to prepare itself for the next elections.
The presidents and communication agents of Quebec’s Liberal federal associations will receive, in the weeks to come, a training that will allow them to very easily update their website. In the meantime, the public and all Liberal members can already discover their riding website, join the Liberal Party of Canada and even make a donation online which will fully be transferred to their local riding association. Other interactive tools of communication (e.g., political forums, blogs, etc.) will also come to complete these micro sites in the months to come.
The launch of these 75 micro websites is a first in Canada! Indeed, this is the very first time a federal political party equips each of its riding associations in a given province with such a political tool. This technological innovation will notably allow the Liberal Party of Canada and its Leader, the Honourable Stéphane Dion, to consult with and inform the citizens in all of Quebec’s regions. It will also allow the Liberal Party of Canada (Quebec) to offer a similar micro website to each one of its 75 candidates during the upcoming election.
In sum, this communication breakthrough places Stéphane Dion’s Liberals at the forefront of Canadian e-democracy.
More information is available on the website of the LPC(Q), at www.lpcq.ca.
