An Independent North?

News from the North - it would seem that former NWT Premier Stephen Kakfwi is so irked with longtime Liberal MP Ethel Blondin-Andrew over an appointment that he is thinking (and telling CBC News) that he is thinking about running against her as an independent in Western Arctic.

Also in the story - 2004 NDP candidate Dennis Bevington reveals that he intends to stand for the nomination again, but he is thoughtful enough to let us know that others might challenge him. A cordial bunch, the Western Arctic NDP, it would seem.

Bevington only lost to Blondin-Andrew by 53 votes, FYI.
