I wonder if Campbell was using this as a way to dump Oppal. It sounds strange, but it's possible. There's a lot of anti-Liberal sentiment in that riding; you'd think he'd know better than to run a key MP in such an iffy district. Of course, we won't know for sure until the final recount.

If only all MLA's were elected as independents.
