Noseworthy running for PCs in tough riding

Despite rumours that he was interested in the leadership of the provincial Liberal party, former Auditor General John Noseworthy has decided to run in the upcoming election for the PC party instead. “I intend to seek the PC nomination in the district of Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi,” John Noseworthy said on his Twitter feed. Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi is the riding held by NDP leader Lorraine Michael, and has been an NDP stronghold since 1987; PC ‘star’ candidate Jerome Kennedy once ran against Michael in 2006 and lost. Noseworthy is best known for a series of 2006 reports that shook politics in Newfoundland and Labrador to the core. His investigations into what is still known as the legislative spending scandal resulted in four politicians — former Tory cabinet minister Ed Byrne, former Liberal cabinet ministers Jim Walsh and Wally Andersen and former New Democratic MHA Randy Collins — being sent to jail.
