Canada Day nomination news

With former MP and candidate Paul Macklin out in Northumberland-Quinte West, two candidates have put themselves forward, Campbellford teacher Andrew McFayden and Cobourg businesswoman and educator Kim Rudd.

However, something that caught my eye in the article:

A nomination meeting is not expected until the fall, candidate search committee chair Doug Mann has said.

I won't claim to be an expert in the on the ground situation in N-QW, but waiting that long? Particularly after David Smith said he wanted most nominations done by the fall? Somewhat unusual to say the least, but at least it gives the candidates more time to get local exposure.
