Earlier, we noted Ida Chong, Colin Hansen and Margaret MacDiarmid are among the MLAs who have yet to endorse a provincial Liberal leadership candidate. In an interview with Public Eye at the party's extraordinary convention, Ms. Chong said she will likely publicly back one of the contenders. But she revealed the candidate she's thinking about supporting has changed over the past few weeks. As for Mr. Hansen, he told us he's unsure whether he'll be endorsing anyone, promising to "look at that next weekend." But what about Dr. MacDiarmid? Well, unfortunately, the cabinet minister has had more pressing matters to deal with - specifically health concerns within her family.
