Liveblogging big speech night at the Liberal convention

Tonight is the tribute to Stephane Dion and other prominent speakers will be on stage as well. Will be attempting to liveblog this, somewhat, with a few posts to come over the next few hours.

Justin Trudeau is now speaking, highlighting the divisive nature of Mr. Harper's politics. Am struck by how comfortable Trudeau is in giving this speech, very confident, poised and calm.

Lots of intro speeches including the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson and MP Hedy Fry as well who loves those recent Nanos polls.

Stirring aboriginal welcome from a local chief who sang an introductory welcome to a standing ovation.

OK, not so exciting post, but Jean Chretien is up lead the next.
