Local Liberals are tight-lipped about whether Peter Milliken's traditional summer barbecue for his supporters is going to be his last.Does the CPC have chance at winning that riding? Possibly, I don't know. Will he announce he's stepping down or he is going to say? What is this mysterious newser going to be about? Stay tuned folks, it will be interesting to see!
Milliken has called a news conference to follow the annual members-only barbecue at his house near Elginburg.
Milliken has not only never held a news conference after the annual garden party, but no Kingston reporter can recall him holding a news conference, ever.
Even when he chooses to run for re-election, he makes his announcement with a written statement.
Local federal Liberals have been selling party memberships for weeks and there is only one reason they would be doing that -- to elect a successor if Milliken has chosen to step aside.
He could announce that he will not stand in the next federal election, but that may not be until 2012
