#CPC13 Day 2 - So, who wants to amend the (party) constitution?


As Day 2 of the Conservative Party convention gets underway, virtually everything on the official agenda until the PM's much-anticipated keynote speech this evening is currently scheduled to take place on the other side of the rope that has kept the media confined to an outer hallway.

Behind closed doors, delegates are slated to begin working their way through the inch-thick package of policy and constitutional resolutions submitted by local riding associations:

Policy resolutions to watch: Gender selection, guns, union finances

Party resolutions to watch: Leadership races, transparency and ethics

Only resolutions that make it through the workshop sessions will be brought to the floor during Saturday's plenary.

Meanwhile, conventioneers -- although, once again, not reporters -- can also attend in camera confabs on EDA fundraising ("Growing Your Local Base"), riding redistribution and "technology updates."

This evening, the action moves to the main stage, where the PM is scheduled to deliver his much-anticipated keynote speech, which will be followed by a "thank you reception" hosted by National Council.
