Hillary was above the border today beginning her Canadian trek in Winnipeg for lunch. A new Facebook page, Canadians for Hillary Clinton, shared this lovely account of the event.
She opened with a “Peg” joke, gently refused to be drawn into a debate about the Keystone pipeline or her political future and earned two standing ovations from a huge Winnipeg crowd.
In between, likely presidential contender and former U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave two shout-outs to Manitoba Hydro’s plans to build a new power line to Minnesota and a nod to rookie mayor Brian Bowman, the city’s first Métis mayor. No one in the crowd of nearly 2,000 seemed to mind Clinton pronounced the S on the end of Métis.
Speaking without notes and untethered from the podium, Clinton began by extolling the friendly relationship between Canada and the United States. She said no border is more peaceful and no two countries share more core values.
Here are some pics.
