Liberal communications director steps down

Just two months before an election the communications director for the provincial Liberal party has resigned. “My commitment was to help [outgoing Liberal leader Yvonne Jones] and her team through to the election,” Craig Westcott told CBC. Westcott’s hiring last October was a controversial one, as he had been a candidate for the federal Conservatives in the 2008 election. Westcott says he will return to working full-time on his two small newspapers, the Business Post and the Irish Loop Post.
