While it's still a race until the votes are tallied, there's still no denying who is in the lead.

First up in the afternoon, Liberals thanked Rae for his tenure at the helm of the party. (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)

'As long as Liberals look for short-cuts, we are doomed to wander in the wilderness,' candidate Deborah Coyne warned the party. (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)

Karen McCrimmon advised the party to stop listening to naysayers. (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)

Joyce Murray said she wants Liberals to win the next election for a purpose. 'To reform Canada's ailing electoral system.' (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)

'I stand before you, a son of Quebec,' Trudeau said, 'a grandson of British Columbia, but a servant of Canada.' (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)

Martha Hall Findlay urged the Liberals to pick a no-nonsense leader. (Peter Bregg, Maclean's)
