Egmont Drama - the Appetizer

Nation, the crap has already begun to hit the fan in the provincial riding of Calgary-Egmont, and we are still a few hours from learning the fate of the democratically-nominated (regardless of circumstance) Craig Chandler.

Riding President, former Alliance candidate, and former Chandler campaign treasurer David Crutcher, accused by many of being the "wedge" that would set the table for Chandler's nomination win, was ousted last night by the riding's Constituency Association board.

Don Leonardo, the riding's Executive Vice-President, has stepped down in protest over the move.

A harbinger of things to come? Or is Chandler going to go into battle without his hand-picked President and with a hostile riding board? Stay tuned.
