Bob Chiarelli to seek Ottawa West-Nepean provincial nomination

The former mayor of Ottawa and MPP for Ottawa West is set to declare tomorrow his intention to run for the Liberal nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean, soon to be vacated by another former mayor looking to return to city hall, Jim Watson. Chiarelli has some competition, however, as 2003 Nepean-Carleton candidate and lawyer Rod Vanier is actively organizing for a run at the nomination.

Meanwhile, 2007 candidate Mike Patton is almost certain to be the PC candidate for the by-election. My original blog post mentioned both Chiarelli and Patton at the top of the list for potential candidates, I'll remind you all.

Ottawa politics are crazy incestuous. Re. democracy, I came across a website,, with some banners and useful resources targetted at educating people about the essential issue re. Harper & democracy, that goes beyond prorogation & Saturday rallies.
