Video: Michael Ignatieff speaks to Vancouver Young Liberals

Video of Liberal interim leader Michael Ignatieff speaking at a Young Liberal pub event in Vancouver last night. He drinks beer, calls for civil disagreement on Gaza, encourages young people to get active in politics, talks about his own journey from watching events as a journalist to wanting to get involved and shape events as a politician, references Pierre Trudeau and defends the Charter of Rights and stands up for Canada.

Good speech.

Thank you for this. I feel marginally better about the guy now.

I agree fully. He was focused, was open and understanding, and willing to accept differing viewpoints.

Victory is around the corner!

I was working otherwise I would have been there... Now I wish I had taken the night off. I think he really hit the nail on the head
