I attended my second ever Liberal event yesterday evening; my first as a Liberal.
Stéphane Dion visited Ajax-Pickering and the campaign office of Mark Holland - this was the "opening act" to Mark Holland's official campaign office opening. Sharing the stage with Mr. Dion and Mark, were Dan McTeague (Pickering-Scarborough East), Brent Fullard (Whitby-Oshawa), Martha Hall Findlay (Willowdale), John McCallum (Markham-Unionville), and Bryan Ransom (Durham).
The energy in the room was incredibly positive. The message was positive.
Mr. Dion focused his visit on backing local candidates, introducing Brent Fullard, who will be replacing Jim Flaherty in Whitby-Oshawa, and talking about the Green Shift.
Quote of the night ... "I gave clarity to Canada, Stephen Harper gave Flaherty to Canada".
Here are some pictures I took with my cellphone camera - I apologize for the quality. I was in a bit of a rush to get there, so I didn't grab my real camera. I tried to get a close up as Mr. Dion walked by on his way out, but then the media cameras were doing a human bulldoze down the middle aisle.
Dan McTeague has some more pictures over at his campaign blog.
NewsDurhamRegion.com has more coverage. I even make an appearance in their video.
