This week on The House with Kathleen Petty, Liberal Party Leader Michael Ignatieff makes his pitch for voting liberal. Is it really a two-way race between him and Stephen Harper or does Jack Layton have the momentum? And what differentiates the Liberals from the other parties? We ask him about his party's platform, including a commitment to health care funding. Finally, we also ask him what he plans to do between now and election day.
