Loose Fish - March 25, 2011

John Horgan boosted his bid for the provincial New Democrat leadership this week by picking up the support of two MLAs - Robin Austin and Gary Coons. Like earlier endorsers Harry Lali and Claire Trevena, Messrs. Austin and Coons were members of the so-called Baker's Dozen. This represents a major win for Mr. Horgan - who we initially thought might not pick up any backing from the dissident MLAs. As it stands right now, Adrian Dix is the only major leadership candidate in that position. The following is a complete copy of our updated loose fish list.

It's early days and its always possible that some of the MLA's won't endorse anyone. Perky Chrisy managed to win with only one MLA supporting her( Harry got rewarded with a big pay raise)
