I was at the Scott Bradley event this morning (more on that later) and I had someone come up and tell me they read my blog actively. I've been getting more and more of this lately, apparently a number of people in the OLO read my blog to keep tabs on nomination news, so in order to continue that service, here we go:
Out of Eastern Ontario, Pembroke lawyer Christine Tabbert has declared for the Liberal nomination in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. The article mistakenly says Tory incumbant and uber-social conservative Cheryl Gallant is a 3-term MP, she is actually a 4 term MP, being originally elected for the Canadian Alliance in 2000, one of only 2 Ontario seats the Alliance won.
Across the Ottawa River in Gatineau, former Liberal MP turned NPD candidate turned President of the NDP-Quebec section Françoise Boivin says that although her nomination has not been formalized, they are waiting for a "strategic moment". Boivin has long been rumoured to be running again, and this would seem to be another confirmation.
