EDA News:Edmonton-Millwoods-Beaumont

The nomination meeting for Edmonton-Millwoods-Beaumont will be held on November 22nd 2006. All paper work must be filed by midnight Nov 1st, and party memberships must be purchased before Nov 1st to be eligible to vote at the meeting.

For those not familiar with the EMB situation; the current MP for EMB MP Mike Lake is expecting a challenge from the yet undeclared Tim Uppal.

I am proud to state that I am supporting Mike Lake in the nomination and if anyone is interested in supporting Mike, they can purchase a membership by calling 465-(edit) before the deadline at the end of the month.

More to follow as the information comes in.

I will bring this up to the top tomorrow, but the latest is that Tim Uppal will NOT be making a challenge in EMB. He has his eyes set on another prize next door in Edmonton-Sherwood park where current MP Ken Epp is planning to retire.

Well I hope he wins, he's young, dynamic and we need more like him!! It must be hard for him to spend so much time away from his young family. I would support him if I was in his area! Tim Uppal has run before, and lost, so why didn't he run last time? Why not back a winner over a loser?

Mr.Uppal lost out to Mike at the CPC nomination before the last election.

Tim also ran and lost 2 times in federal elections against (at least then) Liberal David Kilgour; once for the Alliance in 2000 and once for the CPC in 2004.

He has a bit of a history at losing in this area, and I wish him luck keeping the streak alive through this November.
