Bob Rae update

For those of you who have been asking...

After attending Scott and Maxime's wedding over the weekend and playing in a charity golf tournament on Monday, Bob came down with a mild summer cold. As a result, his procedure has been delayed until later this month.

Bob says: "I hope you enjoy the remainder of your summer. Thanks, as always, for your interest and support."

Bob Rae is doing just fine

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.

Vote for MMP: Public information campaign launched

Elections Ontario has launched a public information campaign on the upcoming referendum question on electoral reform. They've even created a useful website to inform Ontarians of the choice they face on October 10th. I'd invite everyone to visit the site and get a basic understanding of how the proposed MMP system would work. Once we're clear on the basics, we can have a more substantive discussion on the details.
