An unfortunate reference to Bruce Springsteen. Toronto's The Parachute Club had a big hit "Rise Up" in the 80s. Maybe not enough people remember that.
Let's hope that Michael Ignatieff's "Rise Up!" speech and Rick Mercer's recent rant will encourage people, and especially young people, to get out to vote and make a difference. We need to see more of this side of Ignatieff.
Thanks Helen. I wish Ignatieff would be more like this on a consistent basis. Most of the time he's too collegial for his own good. I think he reacts in shock to Harper's prevarications, and is at a loss for words.
