Brison & Butts are both from Nova Scotia. Looks good on them to lose seats there.
“When Butts testified at the justice committee last month, he talked about the electoral conundrum that Brison’s departure created for the Liberals.
“Not to give away a political strategy in this forum,” he said, “but my main political concern was our position in Nova Scotia.”
Butts was worried that with Brison gone — and with a few other Nova Scotia Liberals already at risk of not running for re-election in the fall, particularly if they weren’t given a promotion to replace Brison — the party would be without incumbents in five of their 11 seats in the province, leaving those seats vulnerable.”
