Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion set aside his airplane fiasco this morning, telling University of Western Ontario students today that nothing was going to stop him from getting to London, Ont. "I would have jogged here," said Dion, whose aging campaign plane had to make an unscheduled stop in Montreal for mechancial reasons while flying from Sherbrooke to London. "Nothing was going to stop me from being here in London," he said.
After sitting on the tarmac in Montreal for three hours Tuesday night, a Toronto-based Porter flight came to the rescue and got Dion and the others following the campaign down to London in the wee hours of the morning.
Would the real leader please stand up? This morning London West Liberal MP Sue Barnes spent about four minutes singing the praises of Toronto Centre MP Bob Rae, whose job it is to introduce the party leader Stéphane Dion. It's all part of the grand Liberal plan to take the focus off Dion and put it on his team.
