News from Our Spies

First, thank you all for writing in with your news. Unfortunately, politics at the local level is covered appallingly badly (IMHO) and the vast majority of information has to be transmitted by word of mouth, or word of blog, or whatever. In any event, thank you to those who have contributed, and exhortations to those of you who haven't to do so.

And while you should keep sending us all your news on who's running and where, feel free to let us know about interesting nomination stories. Who's doing what to whom, and what's being done in response...

Of course, confidentiality is our middle name, here at NW, and we feel no responsibilty to source even the most wild rumour. Well, perhaps the most wild rumours. Better tell us, just to be on the safe side.

On to the news. 2004 York South-Weston NDP candidate Paul Ferreira is returning to the fray, and unlike John Nunziata he is hoping to run in the next election for the same party he ran for last time. He'll be seeking the NDP nomination, in other words.

And even more news about those zany Halton Conservatives. The unfortuately named Rick Malbouef is a candidate for the nomination, as is former Scarborough PC candidate Darcy Keene.
