Rae speech at summer caucus: Jobs, jobs, jobs



A great speech by Rae today at the caucus meetings in Ottawa. Going right at Harper and with an economic message. That jobs, jobs, jobs line should be the big soundbite out of the speech. Economic policy provides huge ground for opposition to the Conservatives given what is going on in the world presently and looks to be for many coming years.

There's some humour here too, the "Royal Canadian Wheat Board" line a goodie.

Update (5:35 p.m.): Should also add one other thing here...nice tribute to Stephane Dion that Rae gives, mentions that he's proud to be a member of the same caucus. Highlighting in conjunction with his words on Dion that there is no conflict between the economy and the environment. Nice touch. We could do with a lot more visibility of Dion in coming years as opposed to the last few.
