Fuzzy math

The Edmonton Sun flags a tricky mathematical problem - one candidate for one nomination would seem to equal... zero? It would seem that Nicole Martel is - quite reasonably, we think, behaving like a candidate for the Liberal nomination in Edmonton East, presently represented by Conservative Peter Goldring. Right now she's the only candidate for the (unscheduled, naturally) nomination.

Problematic for Nicole is the looming candidacy of AUPE boss-man Dan MacLennan, soon (it is said) to be awarded the nomination through the exercise of Paul Martin's imperial right to plunk candidates where he pleases.

Ms. Martel's reward for hard work and years of service to the party is... well, it's forthcoming.
