B.C. Liberals need to get into party mode

Governing party needs to get creative to revive its fortunes

Re: A new name for the B.C. Liberals (cartoon, May 18)

I think if the B.C. Liberal Party is going to have any chance of reviving its political fortunes through a change of name, it has to be really bold and imaginative.

For example, the party could start using seasonally-rotating names and call itself the St. Patrick’s Day Party for the spring, the Canada Day Party in the summer, the Halloween Party for the fall months and the New Year’s Eve Party in the winter.

I would seriously consider voting for such a creatively rebranded party, but only if it hosted a giant bacchanalian bash for all of us on the grounds of the legislature at least once each season.
