There is a green hill (not so far away)

So with Jay going over the hill in Ottawa, speculation is starting about who else is going to leave Stephen Harper’s fold before the next election.

But with an election expected in this province in October 2011 (barring any sudden developments), speculation is likely to start mounting about which of the local pile of politicians won’t be running again.

Just in the interests of getting the discussion started, here’s a list of some of the local Conservatives your humble e-scribbler expects to depart before the next provincial writ drops:

  • Kathy Dunderdale
  • Tom Marshall
  • Dave Denine
  • Diane Whelan
  • Roger Fitzgerald

There are undoubtedly others, especially the ones relatively long in the tooth and up for a chunky pension.
