Earlier, we reported Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP partner Clark Roberts was considering running for the provincial Liberal nomination in Saanich South. But Mr. Roberts has since burst that thought bubble. So if he's not running for the nomination, who is? Well, in an interview with Public Eye, outgoing Victoria mayor Alan Lowe confirmed he has "been asked. And, essentially, at this point I don't know whether or not I'd rather take a break from politics for a little while first. But politics is all about timing too. And it's something I have been asked to look at by quite a few people. And, at this point, I haven't really made up my mind." So when will he make up his mind? "Hopefully, before the election," he joked.
