The Globe and Mail’s package today on Ignatieff, Coderre, and the “Toronto Team” is great. The bios of Davey, Apps, Fairbrother, and Rossi are gems. How mean is this?:
Alf Apps, 52, Liberal party president
A Toronto lawyer and businessman, Alf Apps has had his hand in Liberal causes – and internal spats – since the days of John Turner. He helped to recruit Paul Martin into politics, and was an early champion of Michael Ignatieff, becoming national party president after Mr. Ignatieff assumed the leadership. Mr. Apps is considered partly responsible for the imbroglio over the riding of Outremont.
