On Monday, The Hill Times's Abbas Ranna reported former Focus on the Family Canada president Darrel Reid, who was once a "top political aide to former Reform Party leader Preston Manning, will start his new job as chief of staff to Minister (Rona) Ambrose today." So he won't be running for the federal Tory nomination in Richmond. But that doesn't mean Howard Jampolsky will be unopposed. In an interview, Concerned Parents of British Columbia chairman Brian Roodnick confirmed he's "been asked to run for the Conservative nomination in Richmond. There's a group of people that have approached me. And we're taking it under consideration. I think it's likely we'll run."
