* = It's anticipated Mr. Dix will enter the leadership race next week.


Lana Popham will likely endorse her wingman Nick Simons. I also expect thanks to Krueger's mouth, he will not longer be LeadBCL ref.

Krueger,s mouth always manages to make an arse out of him.

In the next week or two we will see many more MLAs come in support of John Horgan.
