Bob Rae to have heart surgery

Good luck and best wishes to Bob Rae, I hope all goes well and he’s back on his feet fighting the good fight and taking-on the Conservatives in Toronto Centre soon…

Former Ontario premier Bob Rae will undergo heart surgery next week at a Toronto hospital to repair his aorta, which has developed a slow-growing aneurysm.

“I am in excellent health and I'm having the operation because I want to stay in excellent health,” Mr. Rae said in a statement released Wednesday.

“Doctors have determined that surgery now is the wisest treatment. They are very optimistic about a positive outcome, and expect a return to a full and active schedule after surgery and about six weeks of recovery time,” the statement says.

Certainly I join you in wishing Bob the best. I saw him two days ago and he seemed to be in good spirits and health.

This "taking on the Conservatives" thing needs a clarification, however. Just because the Conservatives are the biggest threat nationally, that's not so in Toronto Centre. See this post for more.

Chris, I wish you very well and I hope for a strong second place finish for you in Toronto-Centre, just a few votes behind Bob. :)
