ex-Mayor of Surrey seeks Grewal's seat

As everyone knows, Grewal decided against running for re-election in Newton-North Delta. Now the question is who will replace him as a candidate there. Apparently Doug McCallum, who used to be a Liberal, has decided to seek the Conservative nomination (here).

The voters of Surrey decided not to re-elect McCallum as mayor about a month ago.

Update. There's another story about McCallum in the Globe and Mail, here.

Update 2. Chimera has just posted that McCallum has been disqualified. Go see his commentary here.

Whaaaaat/

From the local paper less than a week ago:

This is my town (and by that, I mean that I live here, and I've seen this joker in inaction -- and no, that was not a typo), and maybe someone should warn Stephen Harper that he should have begged GG to stay. 'Cause if he thinks GG was a problem... Hoo, boy! look out!

Buckets, get another site set up, 'cause if former Emperor Doogie wins this seat, you're gonna have more than enough fuel for your fires.

By th' way -- mucho congratulations on making the finals in the CBA!

McCallum is a parasitic political opportunist. His running as a Conservative makes no sense to me because his values have always seemed Liberal to me. His running as a Conservative is a slap in the face to a lot of people IMO.

I just heard on the radio that McCallum has been disqualified, and I posted it to my site. Here's the only text link I could find:
