Lunch with Ruby

Liberal leadership front-runner Michael Ignatieff has come up with an interesting way to raise funds.

He's auctioning off a lunch with the attractive Liberal MP, Ruby Dhalla!!

According to the sales pitch Ruby is a "health care provider, businesswoman and currently sits as an MP for Brampton-Springdale. Meet her for lunch and discuss anything from politics to parliamentary procedure. Location to be determined, but know this – anywhere you are, Ruby’s probably been there twice this year already!"

No word, however, on Ruby's "turn ons" and "turn offs".

Now I don't have a problem with this idea, but it seems to me the supposedly "progressive" Liberal Party would not want to be seen auctioning off its female MPs the highest bidder.

And I wonder what the women's movement thinks about this?

Needless to say, I will be watching this experiment closely. If it works maybe I will employ it to raise funds for the National Citizens Coalition.

OK any ladies out there interested in having lunch with me?

We will start the bidding at 50 cents.
