Big Loss in NDP Land

Alexa McDonough is one Dipper I truly have a lot of time for. She'll be missed n Ottawa I'm certain.

So Mary Clancy has the inside track in winning this seat back for the Grits, I presume?

Is she the lawyer that fought the last nomination?

No, she was the former MP for Halifax from 1988-1997. Lost to Alexa in 1997. Chretien appointed her to the Consulate General's office in Boston, where she stayed until 2004.

Mary is now the Liberal riding President for Halifax. A Martinite through and through, she supported Ignatieff at leadership. This is why I think she will throw her hat in.
