Even More Ontario

In the realm of rumours that are just waiting to become true, we have the as yet officially undeclared former Ontario Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty in Whitby-Oshawa, a seat with boundaries identical to his seat in the Ontario Legislature.

Our readers inform us that lobbyist and 2004 candidate John Capobianco is seeking the Etobicoke Lakeshore nomination against former MPP Morley Kells.

And shadowy Tory sources indicate that someone called Tom Barlow is running against someone called Axel Kuhn somewhere called Etobicoke Centre. Also perhaps in is Tim Flynn, son of former Metro Toronto Chair Dennis Flynn. Flynn is rumoured to have the support of at least some of Chris Stockwell's (former MPP, Etobicoke Centre) people. That is, if he's running...

Similarly Blue Sources lead us to beleive that the threat of Tony Clement has sent retired General Lewis McKenzie scuttling as far as an unnamed Ottawa riding in search of a Conservative nomination.

Oh, and Paul Cooper is seeking the Conservative nomination in Thornhill.

UPDATE: Spelling adjusted, links added and a bonus candidate in Etobicoke Centre. Look what we do for you wonderful democrats!
