A potential candidate for the federal Liberal party in Niagara Falls, Ont. has been arrested on fraud charges -- leaving the party scrambling for a replacement.
James Curran, 42, who serves as the president of the Niagara Falls Federal Liberal Riding Association, was supposed to be named as the party's candidate today at a nomination meeting.
As someone who has always enjoyed Mr. Curran's insights at The "What Do I Know Grit", which is gone gone gone at the moment, I hope this works out all right for him. Unfortunately, unless the charges (cheque kiting) are proven false post haste, his political career is probably over.
