Ignatieff rallies Winnipeg troops

  • Print

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff, on what is likely his last stop in Winnipeg in this election campaign, disputed all rumours that his is a party in decline.

Tuesday night, Ignatieff rallied several hundred supporters at the campaign office for Grit candidate Terry Duguid, who is hoping to steal Winnipeg South back from Tory Rod Bruinooge.

"The Liberal spring is on the way," Ignatieff said. "A Liberal victory is on the way."

Ignatieff's Liberals are running third in some opinion polls and are looking for a miracle in the last week of the campaign to improve upon their 2008 results.

Liberal organizers believe their best and only chance of picking up a second seat in Winnipeg is with Duguid in Winnipeg South.

"We need people to take a stand across Canada," Duguid said. "We need people to vote Liberal."

The Liberals held two of Manitoba's 14 seats when Parliament was dissolved in March: Winnipeg South Centre and Winnipeg North.

In Winnipeg South Centre, Grit Anita Neville is fighting to hold onto the seat after longtime Liberal Joyce Bateman switched allegiances and is running for the Conservatives.

In Winnipeg North, a traditional NDP seat, incumbent Liberal Kevin Lamoureux is in a tight race with New Democrat Rebecca Blaikie.
