Eva Nassif had been widely expected to run for re-election.
Yet another Liberal MP is deciding not to run, deepening the Liberals candidate woes as the election nears.
Quebec MP Eva Nassif – who was elected in 2015 – was widely expected to be the Liberal candidate for Vimy.
In a statement, Nassif said she decided not to seek a second term because of “recent events of a personal nature,” which she says she does “not take likely.”

This adds to the candidate struggles being faced by the Liberals, as they are behind both the Conservatives and People’s Party when it comes to candidate recruitment.
