I have been really impressed by John Tory and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party taking advantage of social networking sites; they have embraced Facebook, YouTube and Flickr, in getting a positive Ontario Progressive Conservative message out.

Now, they have launched, the campaign 2007 blog and website for the upcoming election. It's a great site. I have a graphic up from the site on my right-hand column.

Lots of candidate and policy information; it's clean, bright, and slick. The font's nice too if you want to read it from about 3 metres away :) . Randy's on there too, in case you're wondering.

Admittedly, there are no stories of John buying a fly swatter (guess he doesn't need one?), but there is a story of him trying to wear a kilt:
No kilt at the Kincardine [Scottish] festival mostly due to time constraints. Or maybe they heard about my appearance in Georgetown last year. I thought the people were waving madly because they were thrilled to see me. They were actually shouting advice as to how to sit on the back of a car with a kilt on. I hadn't had much practice. Now I know. All part of the great learning experience that is public life.

I completely agree.

Although I’m not sure if I like the design of this new site it is really impressive how the site is designed to breed a new generation of e-campaigners, something that the party will clearly be heavily relying on in terms of spreading their message
