A crowd-measuring contest (II)

If Stephen Harper is still keeping score, he was decidedly outdrawn last night.

It was squeezing room only at the Liuna Station Thursday night as a crowd of nearly 1,000 people turned out to hear Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff in an town hall-style campaign rally. That crowd was nearly three times the size of the audience that turned out for a much shorter rally with Prime Minister Stephen Harper earlier in the evening.

More on the duelling rallies here and here.
