Slow Night

It would appear (and thank whichever deity appeals to you) that you people have a life, as the pace of news has thankfully slowed.

I can report to you that Don Boudria is running again - clearly taking the strategy of waiting the Martin years out. At this rate, he may not have to wait long. Confusingly, the candidates for the Conservative nomination in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell are both Lalondes. Alain Lalonde was the 2004 Conservative candidate and is a former mayor, and he will face retired Lieutenant-Colonel Pierre Lalonde. Neither are believed to be related to former federal Finance Minister Marc Lalonde and his charming son Paul, a lawyer at Heenan Blaikie, which I am told is a law firm of some kind.

In other news of moderate interest, a gentleman named Peter Conroy is keen on the idea of finishing third in Beaches-East York, and to that end he is presently seeking the Conservative nomination. Reliable sources inform me that he "works with young and mature businesses to assist in their growth".
