Oooh! This is good. Not only have Norm Sterling and Jack MacLaren started scrapping again, but:
Ontario Conservatives have asked Rob MacIsaac to run as a candidate in the fall election, raising questions about the political future of Joyce Savoline, Tory MPP for Burlington.
MacIsaac, the president of Mohawk College and a highly respected former mayor of Burlington, declined the offer.
MacIsaac declines to say who approached him other than to say it was a “high-level representative” from the Conservatives.
But the overture suggests the party has doubts Savoline, who has represented Burlington since 2007, will be seeking re-election.
Is Savoline getting set to bail, or is the PCPO working behind her back to scare up a stronger candidate? She has not been responding to emails lately, so this remains a mystery.
