- MPliberalMichael IgnatieffTonight, we showed Canadians the clear alternative to the Harper regime: a Liberal government that shares your family's priorities. #elxn41
- JaysonMcEwen@M_Ignatieff No, you didn't, actually. STOP w/ the platitudes! Stop talking to CDN's like we're all fools. I beg you. Honestly. #elxn41 #db8
- UhtredU@M_Ignatieff Did good tonight, don't get why people said you showed nothing. Harper's the one that avoided imp issues like the plague #db8
- Prousinator69@M_Ignatieff Doesn't share mine!
- Silveranarchy@M_Ignatieff just like the Russians showed your family at the turn of the 19th century? Once an elitist, always an elitist.
- inotrobot@M_Ignatieff My family's priorities include smaller government. I've heard no mention of this from Liberals. Your position? Your party's?
