Federal Liberal leadership candidate Bob Rae and Michael Ignatieff's supporters were nowhere to be found on the list of 13 leadership convention delegates elected by the party's British Columbia executive on Monday. As required by the party constitution, three of those spots filled by executive members - in this case secretary James Hatton, constitutional advisor Martin MacLachlan and policy chair Cameron St. John. Messrs. Hatton and St. John are both backing Gerrard Kennedy whereas Mr. MacLachlan is an independent. The remaining ten were divided equally between men and women: independent delegates Michele Cadario and Jane Shackell; Kennedy delegates Dean Crawford, Jennifer Hatton, Shannon Salter and Bruce Young; Stephane Dion delegates Mark Marissen, Ann Tautz and Mike Witherly; and Ken Dryden delegate Roy Bornmann.
