Maclean's is tracking Stephane Dion's "Summer Of Love" tour, as he does the barbeque circuit. Provided, an interesting map, that highlights the location of the visits.
I'm sure the regional disparity will change as the summer proceeds, but outside of the Calgary Stampede, Dion hasn't made it past Winnipeg. As a matter of fact, it looks like there might be something to the "center of the universe" phenomenon afterall. I'm not trying to be critical, take this as a suggestion. Ontario is the Liberal stronghold at the moment, Dion's time is better spent elsewhere. No visits to British Columbia, despite the fact that the landscape is fertile? Saskatchewan? One visit to Manitoba, June 3? How about a heavy emphasis on the home province, to re-invent one's self?
The summer is young, and surely there will be more visits to the "hinterlands" (I hear a big fundraiser is planned in B.C), but for anyone who looks at the map presently, it's a tad heavy on the EST. This isn't time to play to the base, particularly when the supposed goal is introducing yourself to Canadians. Hit the road Stephane, go west young man :)
