Two Month Old News As It Happens

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone:

OTTAWA — Veteran Liberal MP Maurizio Bevilacqua is resigning, paving the way for a mayoral bid in his hometown of Vaughan, Ont.

Bevilacqua says he informed Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff Wednesday that he won't be seeking re-election and the leader thanked him for his years of service, a party official said.

He's expected to formally resign his parliamentary seat, which he's held for 22 years, later this week.

This will set off an interesting fall in Vaughan, with a hotly contested mayoral race and a hotly contested by election.



  • Sackville-Eastern Shore may also have a by-election as Peter Stoffer is rumoured to be running for the mayor of Halifax.
    The Conservatives were second there and in Vaughn last federal election.
    Liberals could turn the by-elections into a leadership review.

  • Second, highlight the key benefit in your promotional letter in a header or bullet points (brief, clear and to the point). You really only have a few seconds for them to decide whether to actually read the letter or trash it.
