"Sousa! Sousa! Sousa!" chants the crowd.
Sousa talking about his dad who worked in Kensington Market. "He was the real king of Kensington."
“Let’s fix our transportation…Let’s integrate our public transit into one regional system and make Metrolinx responsible for the TTC," Sousa says.
“Only Ontario Liberals have a plan to eliminate the deficit by 2017, while [providing for] opportunities for future generations," Sousa says.
“I’m proud to be part of a government that has done more for Education in Ontario. More to build schools, more to hire teachers…” Ties himself to McGuinty.
Sousa says Dalton Mcguinty will be known as the education premier.
"Fighting against someone - that's politics. Fighting for people, for Ontarians - that's leadership," he says.
"We're the party of what's next. And what's next is a province with more jobs and a stronger economy," Sousa says.
And Sousa is done. Furtado's "Forca" is back on air. I want to dance.
Pupatello, the front-runner, is next. She's served as MPP for Windsor West for 16 years.
Pupatello on stage now. She wins the noise award...
Pupatello says she's honoured to be with the other candidates in this race. "Merci a vous," she says.
"As the daughter of immigrants, I learned early the value of hard work," Pupatello says. "The hope is in our DNA," she says to immigrants' children...
"What you see is what you get," Pupatello says. Then she says it in French. "What you get with me is someone who will listen."
We are pulling in tweets from reporters John Stall, Francis D'Souza and Irene Preklet who are all here covering the convention.
"We can do this," Pupatello repeats throughout her speech - finished now. Next up, Eric Hoskins.
Hoskins is married with a son and has been MPP for three years in the St. Paul's riding.
Two delegates - high school students - on Hoskins' team are on stage now, explaining why they support him.
The Liberal party confirms the total number of delegates registered is 2,126.
