Despite being Canada's worst kept secret for months,
the recently called federal election revealed outdated
or incorrect information on party websites for the
Desnethé-Missinippi-Churchill River riding.
The Green Party website claims that Robin Orr is its
candidate, but that information is outdated and refers
to the by-election in March. A call to the organizer
listed on Orr's nomination site led to another name and
alleged candidate. But the official word from the Green
Party's Ottawa office said they don't have a candidate
Conservative MP Rob Clarke's election site lists an
out of service number. According to the party's media
line, they are behind in updating contact information
The NDP also lagged behind. Brian Morin is their
candidate, but the number listed on the NDP's site leads
to its 2006 nominee, Anita Jackson. She said she's
received numerous calls from people looking for Morin.
"Sure doesn't say much about the people wanting to
represent us up here," said Jackson of the dysfunction.
"They need to change the number."
The only candidate with reliable contact information
for residents to call is Liberal David Orchard.
