Enthusiastic, but too young to vote
Day four of the campaign and the Liberals enjoy their biggest rally of the campaign.
Six hundred students jammed into an auditorium of Sacred Heart Secondary School in Walkerton, Ontario, to meet Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion.
Too bad for Dion that the vast majority of these kids are not old enough to vote!
Dion told the students: "You will be my inspiration."
Several students had the chance to ask questions.
One boy asked whether with all the attack ads and tough media, Dion felt like a kid being bullied in the schoolyard and what advice would he have for any kids being bullied.
The Liberal Leader said anyone being bullied should immediately tell the principal. He then went on to say that since he has no principal he needs to be a big boy. He says he's been attacked his entire career.
