He shoots ... He scores ... Ken Dryden did something tonight that he was never able to do during his illustrious hockey career.
That is, score, and in the dying seconds of his speech at that.
Just as his microphone was being cut off because the time for his speech was ending he came out with what could be the rallying cry of all Liberals in the next election and something that all Canadians might take to heart.
"I want my Canada Back"
But it was heard and, I am sure, is still, reverberating amongst all Liberals at the Convention and those watching.
Scott Brison also gave insight into the complexity of the issue of the environment and the degree to which the current government lacks understanding.
He pointed out the great potential we Canadians have to take the lead in the world in developing technology to be applied to the war against global warming and pollution and how this is, in reality, a boost for our economy and not a drag on it.
He was able to do all this by taking off from the Clinton [Campaign of 1996] now famous iteration.
"Its the Green economy, stupid"
