The Final Days: Ottawa

Liberal Marc Godbout’s campaign office is in the same suburban strip mall as Conservative MP Royal Galipeau. Which helps explain why nine Conservative supporters were positioned by the road, waving signs, as the Liberal tour arrived this evening.

Mr. Dion was joined on stage by his sister, Frances (in addition to his wife and daughter who were traveling with the campaign already).

A few changes to the stump speech; one to address Elizabeth May’s alleged call for Green supporters to vote Liberal or NDP in various ridings; the second to address Stephen Harper’s admission that the Conservative climate change plan will lead to higher energy costs.

Which admission? Apparently this one (scroll down to paragraph 14). Though one assumes the question has been asked of the Prime Minister before and, for that matter, he didn’t wait until his last press conference to clarify that. Er, right?
