It's probably worth more than one thread, but the discussion of the Desjarlais defeat is already going on over here.

Since this seems to be the only open Desjarlais thread, I'll post this here...

Actor acclaimed as Liberal candidate

quote:
Tina Keeper has been acclaimed as the Liberal candidate in the federal riding of Churchill.

Keeper, who starred in the TV show North of 60, is a member of the Norway House Cree Nation. She was the only declared candidate in the nomination race.

As the Liberal candidate, Keeper will face off against the riding's current MP, Bev Desjarlais.

Desjarlais was elected as a New Democrat in the riding three times, but recently lost her party's nomination in Churchill.

...

The NDP will be represented in the Churchill race by Niki Ashton, whose father is Manitoba NDP cabinet minister Steve Ashton.

Keeper, who won a National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 2004, was born in northern Manitoba. Her family moved to Winnipeg when she was four.

Her portrayal of Const. Michelle Kenidi, a single mother working as an RCMP officer in the fictional Northwest Territories town of Lynx River on the CBC series North of 60 earned her a Best Actress in a Continuing Series Gemini in 1997.

Since leaving the show that year, Keeper has been busy as a social activist, with issues like aboriginal rights, high suicide rates, and violence against women on her agenda.

I'd imagine that she'll be going to great lengths to keep it to herself.

I would imagine she's in favour, but in the event she were not, her position would likely be "this is an issue that has been decided by parliament and I don't see any reason to revisit it."

Well, I hope Bev doesn't let the door hit her in the ass on the way out. She has no chance to win the riding as an Independant, right?

She's married. Good Christian women who disapprove of equal marriage would never divorce.

Right Connie?
