Nomination news out of Quebec and BC

France Beaulieu, a Shawinigan city councillor and president of the Mauricie Regional Conference is seeking the Liberal nomination in the riding of Saint-Maurice-Champlain. This riding was, of course, back when it was known simply as Saint-Maurice, the stomping grounds of Jean Chretien, who represented the riding for 28 (albeit non consecutive) years.

According to this article: 2008 candidate Ronald Saint-Onge Lynch is also running again. The nomination meeting will be August 28th.

In Richmond-Arthabaska, businessman Louis Bérubé is going after the Liberal nomination. He is the Business Development Manager of the Caisse Desjardins for the L'Érable region. The nomination meeting will be held on August 10th.

Also, according to Pundits Guide, the Liberals have nominated a candidate for one of the vacant ridings, that of New Westminster – Coquitlam.

The nomination was apparently won by Ken Beck Lee, a businessman and leader of the local Korean community. He defeated Gerry Lenoski, a Liberal insider and management specialist who ran in 2oo8 in the neighboring riding of Burnaby – New Westminster.
