It was a busy weekend for Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff as he made a number of stops around southern Ontario.
Here's a report from CHCH news on his visit to Hamilton:
His visit to Waterloo for a Young Liberal rally got good coverage by the local media (watch the rally video here):
WATERLOO — The Liberal Party abandoned its support for the Conservatives in the House of Commons because of the Tories’ terrible record on a whole slew of issues, Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff said Saturday.And in Toronto he also delivered greetings for Eid,the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan:
During a visit to Wilf’s campus pub at Wilfrid Laurier University, Ignatieff attacked the Tories on a broad range of issues, including the rising deficit, high unemployment, its response to the H1N1 flu epidemic and its failure to fix the problem over medical isotopes.
After detailing the Tory shortcomings on each issue, Ignatieff paused for dramatic effect and asked, “Is that good enough?” The audience packed with young Liberals responded on cue with a loud “no.”
I understand today at 11:45am in Toronto, Ignatieff will be speaking to the Toronto Board of Trade. It's supposed to be an economic speech, and hopefully it will put a little policy meat on the bones. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
