Ottawa municipal election

I know that it is hardly as exciting as the Toronto race, but our nation's capital does have an election too. I find it interesting that will all the talk of the Tea Party sweaping north with Ford in Toronto, that Jim Watson, who is probably the most anti-tea party politician you could think of (moderate, lots of governmental experience, generally seen as being one of the more polite politicos out there) looks like an almost sure lock to win.

Ottawa-West Nepean Liberal Nomination

The inside scoop is that the Liberal Party of Canada is looking for "star" candidate to replace David Pratt to take on John B. 

There are three unimpressive local candidates running, but they have been fighting for this nomination tooth and nail and yet the Liberal party has absolutely no intention of letting any of them be on the ballot come election time.

I hear that, apparently, the party is forcing the riding association to delay the nomination until they can find a star candidate and will then force the other nominees to drop out.

Very interesting.
