Sketchy news from Wetaskawin. The Lacombe Globe reports that five candidates are seeking the Conservative nomination in Wetaskawin, as incumbent Conservative MP Dale Johnston is retiring. As of last Thursday, only Blaine Calkins of Lacombe had filed nomination papers.

For those of you who thrive on such details, the Wetaskiwin constituency stretches from Devon in the north to Blackfalds in the south, and from the western tip of Buffalo Lake in the east to the North Saskatchewan River in the west.
