In January, Vancouver-Burrard provincial Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt mused about running for federal Conservatives in the next election. Almost two months later, Mr. Mayencourt has yet to announce whether he'll actually be joining Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the campaign trail. But one could be coming sooner rather than later. Mr. Mayencourt's annual fundraiser is scheduled to take place on March 14 at the Victoria Chinese Restaurant. So it would make some sense if the backbencher declared was to declare his intentions after that fundraiser.
