This picture of Liberal Party leader Stephane Dion with Stand’er Brianna Ames was taken in Toronto on September 28. Following the debates, we sent his office the following note:
I just wanted to take this opportunity to ask you to pass a message along to Mr. Dion thanking him for mentioning Darfur in both the English and French debates last week.
Over the past four weeks Stand Canada has been working hard to get as many candidates to “Speak the Name” as possible, we have gotten a tremendous response from Liberal candidates across the country – each of them committed to working with our University chapters and our National board. In our mind, Mr. Dion’s remarks during both debates illustrated that the Liberal Party’s commitment to this important issue goes beyond rhetoric.
