Fort Whyte Byelection Part 2
Bob Axworthy to Run For Liberals
The Liberals have decided not to roll over in Fort Whyte byelection. They are running a resident from the riding and a well known family name in Manitoba politics: Bob Axworthy. The NDP and Tories are running people from outside the riding.
Axworthy is a well known coach in the city and community club participant.
Could this be a gamechanger? Hard to say. The Tories have a huge majority of votes from just over a year ago.
One thing for certain is that byelections are very local.
