With a minority government in place in Ottawa, and the possibility of a spring federal election in the making, the Thunder Bay-Rainy River NDP will hold its nomination meeting tomorrow (Feb. 1).
The NDP wants to make sure it has a candidate in place—ready to run for election—in the event the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is defeated following a vote later this spring on the federal budget.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the East End hall here in Fort Frances. All NDP members are being asked to attend.
John Rafferty, who finished second to Liberal Ken Boshcoff in last year’s federal election, once again is seeking the NDP nomination.
