Ignatieff spoke at the YL meeting, the room was packed and very enthusiastic. Probably the highlight, Ignatieff made a passionate plea in favor of the OMOV resolution. Ignatieff said it wasn't his place to dictate, but he did say if there is one thing he wants to see come out of this convention, it's that OMOV passes. Ignatieff was quite animated, seeing this measure as another tool to draw ordinary Canadians into the party. The speech ended with Ignatieff putting on a Canucks jersey, which by pure coincidence had the number 23 on the back.
I don't have the exact numbers yet, but Ignatieff eluded to the fact that the convention attendance is better than expected.
