Seek and ye shall find

NomWatch overload. Bit of a WestWorld moment over here. As a result, you get all the links, with a slight snark reduction.

Adscam whistleblower (which sounds a little like a circa 1998 indie band) Allan Cutler will seek the Conservative nomination in Ottawa South, presently held by celebrity sibling David McGuinty.

It's also a good day to be a former Progressive Conservative turned Liberal. John Loewen is such a creature, and is now the Liberal candidate in Winnipeg's Charleswood-St. James-Assiniboia. The much ballyhooed Bruck Easton has made things official in Windsor-Tecumseh.

Marc Garneau will be the Liberal candidate in Vaudreuil-Soulanges, a state of affairs that seems to have carved Nick Discepola into small pieces and precluded a comeback for the former Liberal MP defeated in 2004. So says the G&M. They also helpfully add that Tory turned Liberal David Price will seek to reclaim his seat of Compton-Standstead in the Liberal interest - he was also turfed by the electorate in 2004.

Former BC Liberal MLA Joyce Murray will face present MP Paul Forseth and former MP Dawn Black in New Westminster-Coquitlam-Port Moody, according to the Tri-City News.

Fresh from a recent rejection by the voters, Doug McCallum - until last Saturday Mayor of of Surrey, B.C. is considering giving the voters a second chance. This time, he wants them to make him the Liberal MP for South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale. This gem courtesy of the charmingly named Peace Arch News.
