This past weekend, I decided to mosey out to the Jericho Sailing Club to listen to Vancouver Quadra MP Joyce Murray tell her constituents that she's seeking the federal Liberal leadership.
Murray's speech featured a high-fibre diet of policy prescriptions, including a price on carbon and legalization of marijuana.
I was less enamoured by her heavy reliance on a written script, which undermined her ability to connect with her audience. I would have thought that after so many years in politics, Murray would have delivered this speech extemporaneously.
Contrast that with her rival, Justin Trudeau, who has no trouble speaking without a script. The only problem is that sometimes, he goes over the top in the drama department—as you can see in the video below.
Justin has a lot to say about Justin.
