Bob Rae addressed the Liberal caucus on Wednesday and scrummed with reporters afterwards. On Thursday, he spoke to the party’s council of presidents.

According to the itinerary released by his office, he’ll shortly deliver the official opening speech to the conference, then he’ll speak with reporters at 1pm, then he’ll be back on stage tonight around 8pm to deliver remarks in tribute to Michael Ignatieff.

On Saturday, he will apparently rest.

Sunday, he’ll be back on stage to deliver closing remarks to the convention and then there will be a news conference.

That’s five speeches and three meetings with reporters in five days.
