As many of you may have heard, Bob Rae will be undergoing heart surgery next week to remove an aneurysm from his aorta. His doctors are confident that he will fully recover within weeks.
I spoke with Bob briefly this morning on a conference call with key members of his campaign team. He sounded positive and optimistic. Looking forward to the upcoming federal election (or byelection, depending on the case), he said he looks forward to resuming his active campaign schedule within six weeks or so. Quite frankly, his confidence was infectious. All of us left the call in an upbeat mood.
Bob remains committed to the people of Toronto Centre and to Liberals across Canada. I can't wait to see him enter the House of Commons so that he can continue to fight for the progressive ideals Canadians want.
