The Final Day: Scene of the thrill or agony

The Liberals have set up in a ballroom at the Four Points Sheraton near the airport in Montreal. Glass chandelier in the middle of the room, a big screen on either side of the stage and 16 Canadian flags behind the podium.

Less impressive, the first review for this hotel at Tripadvisor.com.

“The room was a little shabby but not terrible. The food was better than expected. The big problem was the (medium-sized) mouse that I found rustling around in my purse and luggage at 2 am. The hotel comped my room; they couldn’t switch me because the hotel was full. It made for an unsettling night, to say the least.”
