Interesting Piece from Norman Spector

Norman Spector is blogging for the Globe and Mail during this election. He has a very interesting little tid bit today.

Seems that Ricardo Lopez, former Mulroney era PC MP, is running for the Liberals in Beauharnois-Salaberry. He ran in 2000 for the Canadian Alliance in Ch√Ęteauguay.

Given his comments about Oka and his social conservative views on abortion, I suspect that the Liberals will drop him as a candidate in the next 24 to 48 hours.

His nomination shows to me how far the Liberals have fallen in Quebec. Beauharnois Salaberry was until 2006 reasonable competitive ground for the party, now they are irrelevant to the race in the riding.
