Nomination news in 3 provinces

Garth Turner confirmed what many expected, and has declared to run for the Liberal nomination in Dufferin-Caledon. Ironically, Turner originally wanted to run for the Tories in this riding in 2006, but decided on Halton.

Do you mean Mason Lowe? A good guy. He was a major BC organizer for Bob Rae's 2006 leadership campaign, ran into some issues on registration, but has been a longtime, dedicated Liberal who has ran before (van east?)...

Ah, correction: the correct spelling is Mason Loh.

Ah yes, you actually totally correct and I just wrote the name completely wrong from my source. Thanks for the correction.

I've yet to hear Garth's confirmation or denial of the Hill Times article.
