… meanwhile the Liberals lose a 2nd candidate

With the provincial election just over a month away, the Liberal party has lost its second candidate in under a month. Ken Carter told the party that he would no longer be able to run in the riding of Fortune Bay-Cape La Hune because it was too far away from his home and his family. Carter lives in St. John’s while the riding is situated on the south coast of Newfoundland. Carter says the decision is based primarily on the time commitment required of him, and has nothing to do with the party’s leadership. Earlier in August John Baird withdrew his candidacy because he had no confidence in new Liberal leader Kevin Aylward.
