MPs Not Running In Next Election: 25

According to the Hill Times, the following current MPs will not be running in next election. There are 7 vacancies expected by end of summer, with 5 after byelection. Many believe that narrow partisan reasons were used to not call the remaining 5 byelections to happen at the same time.

Belinda Stronach and others not seeking re-election

A Toronto Star article by Laura Bobak indicates that Belinda Stronach is returning to Magna.

Stronach is leaving federal politics to return to the equally turbulent auto sector before the next federal election, which observers speculate could come as early as this spring.

Add to this the 17 MPs previously announced as not running, as well as the following additional 4 MPs announced in this week's Hill Times.

Julie Sabourin (Westmount - Ville-Marie, Green Party of Canada)

Dear Mr. McOrmond:

I recognize that the questions you have raised are very important and must be addressed by the Green Party, as well as the other Partys. Some of your questions are easy to answer, such as agreeing that stronger laws and enforcement mechanisms are needed to protect Canadians from unwanted behaviours associated with spyware. However, some of your other questions will require further reading on my part before I can give a useful answer.

I would be happy to examine your links more in detail and discuss these matters further, once I have more time available after the election.
