Liberal Leader Ignatieff Speaking in Winnipeg Thursday

By David Klassen

Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff kicked off a cross-Canada university speaking tour this week.

Iggy will be in Winnipeg this Thursday to speak to students at the University of Manitoba from 9:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

The speech to young Canadians leads up to “Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge” — a non-partisan conference in Montreal in March.

Ignatieff is visiting six post-secondary institutions as part of the tour.

“A Conversation with Michael Ignatieff” takes place in the main lobby of the Drake Centre at 181 Freedman Crescent.
