Photographer's Note

Another from my Elections 2006 series. This was taken during the big NDP rally for leader Jack Layton and his Toronto candidates.

They packed about 1500 supporters (they gave away those orange hats and scarves at the door) into this long hall at Exhibition Place. It was a raucus partisan affair.

My favourite line from the event was, "We know what the Liberals (the current ruling party) will want you to be thinking. They will be saying that everyone in Canada has to vote Liberal or life will end on planet Earth. The Liberals will say that if everyone in Canada doesn't vote for them, the sun won't rise, the spring won't come and volcanoes will destroy the earth." [Layton]

I got up on stage and as no one told me to leave, stayed there ;) If anyone from Canada saw the news that night they would have seen me on stage left front in every wide angle shot!
