Michael Ignatieff warned today that he is in danger of becoming a "fat guy" after this summer tour. (And yes, the bus is back up and running today.)
It is true that there's a food-centric element to these political events: barbecues, baked goods at every stop; junk food on the bus. Just a few minutes ago, I found a box of cookies floating in front of my face. I was so taken up with choosing which one to have that I didn't notice that it was Ignatieff himself holding out the box in front of us. I guess the idea is that if he's going to get fat, we have to too.
CTV has rejoined the tour today, by the way. Roger Smith has been explaining that the bus breakdown yesterday made bosses rethink plans to ignore the tour today.
Now it's on to Chez Piggy in Kingston.
