Ian Shields, nominated last night to represent the conservatives in Wascana has an uphill battle against incumbent liberal Ralph Goodale. It will be interesting to see how many debates he is prepared to get into with Mr. Goodale. If there were one, you would not want to miss it.
Ian Shields is in tight with the conservative hierarchy and a candidate easily controlled by the conservative brass. Regardless, that does not make him a credible candidate nor is it any proof that he knows anything about politics. By his own definition, he is a peacock and every bit of what that implies. He is anything, but modest. If you want an “in your face” candidate then watch for Ian Shields to come knocking at a door near you. He will get your attention, guaranteed.
