Loose Fish - February 25, 2011

Provincial Liberal leadership candidate George Abbott picked up two final MLA endorsements this week: self-described race "referee" Kevin Krueger and Donna Barnett. That means the only Liberal legislators who didn't endorse anyone were fellow referee Barry Penner, as well as Linda Reid and Bill Barisoff - who serve as deputy speaker and speaker of the legislative assembly respectively. Meanwhile, on the New Democrat side of the aisle, there were no new MLA endorsement announcements this week. The following is a complete copy of our updated loose fish list.
