Cornwall ON – Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff was Singing in the Rain last night in Cornwall Ontario. In a Stephane Dionesque moment his bus broke down en route , but ever the trooper, the sole reason Stephen Harper is still in power, hitched a ride and made it to the crowd of nearly 200 who were munching on hot dogs and hamburgers awaiting his arrival.
Revved up by his nearly hour long impromptu speech and customary kissing of the babies; a jeans wearing Mr. Ignatieff’s event also included an attack on the NDP. The crowd showed their appreciation; but the hero, or heroine of the night was Bernadette Clement; the local Liberal Candidate in the upcoming election who garnered the biggest cheers from the patient and soggy crowd who braved a wait indoors without air conditioning at the Dream Builder studio.
Tomorrow the Liberal leader hits Brockville and Kingston as his tour across Canada continues.
