“First of all, this is about the country, this is about Canada, this is about our love for Canada. The Liberal party has suceeded… because it has been able to find itself in the heartland of Canada, and its values have always tried to reflect the values of Canadians. It’s about the country before its about the party.”
~Bob Rae

“How do we take the vision and turn it into something called politics? If we can’t put it into practice, then we can’t make a difference, and we haven’t really succeeded”
~Bob Rae

“I see a Canada whose vision is of the world… which understands that our foreign policy is as critical as what we do at home; that we can’t break down these barriers. I see a Canada where the resolution of conflict is just as important as what we do at home.”
~Bob Rae

“I see a Canada where every child that goes to school, goes to school hungry for knowledge, and not hungry for food.”

“If not now, when? We have to be united as we go forward together. Let us remember what we owe to Canadians. We owe them our integrity. I committ that of my time.”
~Bob Rae, quoting R. Hillel
