I like to formally request that you changed the title of your post. Mr. Chiarelli was not "nominated" but "appointed". Now there's nothing wrong with that, but I just think it is intellectually dishonest to give the impression there was an actual nomination contest when in fact there wasn't. Mr. Chiarelli was put in by the party to run; he happens to be a former mayor of Ottawa, so I don't doubt his ability to represent this riding well. But let's treat people like they have a brain here and not sugar coat this.

Hey, man. Sorry but I meant to say change the wording in your post about "nominated". Your title's fine, my bad.
