The Conservative Party's National Council has bounced Helena Guergis as the nominated candidate for Simcoe-Grey, CTV News has learned.
She was informed of the decision Wednesday afternoon, as was her riding association, CTV Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife reported.
Sources told CTV News that Guergis was removed as a candidate because Conservatives are concerned an election could be called at any moment, and they need to have nominated candidates in all 308 ridings.
Also from CTV the latest poll from Nanos: CPC up 2.5 to 37.2% LPC down 1.4 to 33.2% NDP down 1.6 to 16.2% BQ up 1.9 to 9.6% and Greens down 1.4 to 3.8%
Greens up in Calgary! Comment number 1 is brilliant. How can we make that happen?
