Former Alberta ND leader Ray Martin is set to return to provincial politics and will seek the ND nomination in Beverly-Clearview, according to a report in today's Edmonton Journal. The story says Martin, a current Edmonton Public Schools trustee, was motivated by the Tories behaving like "bullies" with regard to education. The story also states that Martin has no intention of seeking the ND leadership.

We got 19% in that seat last time around. I think Ray could win it back.

The current MLA is Juliun Yankowsky, one of the more anonymous members of the Tories' ineffectual Edmonton caucus. They're certainly vulnerable.

Now...if we could get Jan Reimer, Michael Phair, Janice Melnychuk (sp?), Dave Theile, and Malcolm Azania to run provincially, the Edmonton campaign might get a decent amount of attention!

I suspect the PC's are going to bleed some support in this election. Not enough to jeopardize their majority, of course, that comes next time, post-Ralph(if it comes at all). We should be able to make gains at their (and perhaps the Liberals) expense. There are three or four seats in Edmonton that we look good in. A couple of lucky breaks, and you can double that.
