Dion Snubs Brison and His Delegates

Today, appearantly, Scott Brison bit the bullet and realized he wasn't going to win. His new strategy? Hosting an event with all of his delegates and inviting the top four contenders to come and help get his delegates sorted out for second ballot support.

Bob Rae and Michael Ignatieff showed up, Gerard Kennedy had Justin Trudeau go in his place, while Stephane Dion didn't attempt any showing of any kind. The article describes Stehane Dion's absence and of any representative, and adds Scott Brison's delegates response of feeling neglected by Dion.
Stephane Dion didn't turn up and did not send a stand-in.

With no one assured of victory and any of the top four candidates having a realistic shot at victory, the omission seemed odd.

The slight did not go unnoticed by Brison stalwarts, some of whom intrepreted Dion's absence as a sign that the fourth-place contender simply doesn't have the organization necessary to launch a come-from-behind victory.

This coupled with reports of Dion supporters having poor enthusiasm at Dion events at the convention, builds to support such a theory of lack of organization or other resources.

Well, then Brison's votes will most certainly not go to Dion.
