The Liberal leader toured a market in Dieppe, N.B., a bustling building filled with the enticing smells of food. He wandered down aisles of vendors selling cheese, meats, hand-crafted jewelry, past Tammy's Famous Breakfast Sandwiches and Tresors de la Mer (Treasures of the Sea).
“Think he's going to buy our stuff?” said one jewelry vendor.
“I don't think so,” said the vendor next door at ‘Donald’s Workshop’ selling wooden toys and bowls.
“Maybe he’ll buy something if you vote for him,” came the reply.
Dion was joined on his morning outing by local Liberal candidates Dominic LeBlanc (Beauséjour), Brian Murphy (Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe) and Charles Hubbard (Miramichi).
At one, Dion greeted a family having breakfast and gave their small boy a large piece of fudge he had picked up from one of the vendors. A child on a sugar high. Might be the recipe for a parent to vote Conservative.
