Video: Campaign launch highlights

When we launched our campaign last month at The Pilot Tavern, in the centre of the ward that’s at the centre of the city, I was overwhelmed by the support I received from those of you who were there or sent messages. It was a very special and exciting night. If you couldn’t be there (or you were there and want to re-live it), here are some video highlights of the evening:

In the coming days we’ll also post some longer-form video from the launch. (This highlights video is also available on Facebook.) And as always, if you’d like to get involved with this campaign, we’d love to hear from you.

Desmond Tutu’s leadership (video)

On Sunday morning I briefly met Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu (sorry Dot, no picture) before he gave a speech to a large crowd in City Hall square here in Copenhagen. One of the things I’m doing while here is producing video for the United Church of Canada, and here’s the first product of those efforts: selections from Tutu’s notable and influential speech. (If you don’t see the video embedded below, use this link.)

What makes a politician great?

Embedded below, video from last night’s The Agenda. This was my third appearance (first one here, second one here) which makes it tempting to refer to myself as a regular, but that would probably jinx any chance I have at future appearances. (It’s a privilege and a joy to be on The Agenda. It’s a great show and Steve Paikin is a very impressive host.)

Get comfy before pushing play. It’s a little over 50 minutes long.
