Its been announced that Susan Auch will run for the PC's in Assiniboia this fall against NDP incumbent Jim Rondeau. Young, good looking (not that its a requirement) competitive, demonstrated drive and determination, thats what this province needs.

She needs to win the PC constituency vote first, but who could compete against a candidate like her.

She has name recognition. She makes her home in Calgary (according to http://www.susanauch.com/about.htm). so will she be seen as a "parachute candidate" or a legit contender?

considering that information is from 2002

"On February 14th, 2002, Susan will aim for the podium at the
Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, the fifth of her career."


I bet she has moved back since she "retired" from speed skating

If she's no longer in Calgary, she needs to update this, and her Wikipedia entry, as well.
http://www.susanauch.com/contact.htm
"Today, Auch works as a real estate agent in Calgary." - Wikipedia.

I know she is on her way back to Winnipeg. I don't know if she is a parachute candidate and don't care. This is a native Winnipegger who has done well for herself and is returning home.

I wish her luck.

Obviously she took up residence in Calgary as thats where she trained. Can't see it being a bad thing for someone wanting to return home to try to make a difference.

I expect unlike other recent "parachute" returnees Auch is not arriving with one or two provincial or federal pensions under her arm eh?

Hasn't worked out well for Iggy. I suspect the knives will be out for him big time after they lose another election.

My sentiments as well. I too wish her luck in the battle to out the socialists from office.

Huh? That doesn't make sense.

If you're in his constituency and can/did vote for him, and you know he lives in another Province, you should care.

I can't vote is what it is supposed to say

How do I know he lives in another province? Because GOM said so?
