Liberal candidate quits over party leadership

Just two days into Kevin Aylward’s Liberal leadership and just two months until a provincial election, a candidate has withdrawn from his commitment to run in the next election. In an email Baird said he is leaving because he doesn’t have faith in the party’s new leader – Kevin Aylward. “[He] does not represent the progressive vision for the Liberal Party that attracted me to seek the nomination,” he wrote.
