LATEST LIBERAL DELEGATE TOTALS

5:30 EST
107/465 meetings reported in:

IGNATIEFF 314
RAE 185
DION 184
KENNEDY 135
BRISON 65
DRYDEN 52
VOLPE 41
HALL-FINDLAY 17
UNCOMMITTED 27

Ignatieff is now back over 30% but he should slip back again as the Western results come in- it's still early afternoon out there so those meetings are far from over.

Looks to me as if there are really four serious contenders for the Liberal leadership: Ignatieff, Rae, Dion and Kennedy.

For Liberals blogger reaction check out the Liblogs website; at least those guys are plugged in to what is going on on the ground this weekend, so they can actually tell you what is happening. Exciting times for Liberal members. And no thanks to the mainstream media who have been giving this big political weekend hardly any coverage. Instead, they're covering the usual death and destruction.

If this were the 'States these delegate selections would be getting live continuing coverage from the likes of CNN and Fox News. All the political pundits would be out in full force, and we'd have correspondents on the ground with the campaigns. Instead, we have to rely on the Liberals for all our information. Nice going, media guys. Thanks for nothing, eh?

For live continuing fair and balanced coverage of the Liberal Super Weekend count on THE CAIRNS BLOG, because let's face it, you can't count on TV news for any coverage!!!
