McGuinty Takes Coffee Break in Guelph

On the occasion of International Coffee Day, Premier Dalton McGuinty stopped at the Red Brick Cafe on Westmount Rd in Guelph on his way to a campaign stop in Cambridge. News of the impromptu stop came quite all of the sudden this morning, but there were about 50 Liberal supporters in attendance along with Liberal candidate and MPP Liz Sandals. McGuinty and his wife Terri hoped off the bus, talked to Red Brick owner Shelley Krieger, placed their order and then helped out the baristas behind the counter.
The stop wasn't meant to be political, and no press questions were taken. There was a moment of controversy, which I will follow up in a later post, and on his way out to the campaign bus, a total of three PC supporters were there to chant at McGuinty that he's got to go, but for the most part, the Premier's visit was short and sweet. Check out the photo slideshow below.
