One of the candidates for the Liberal nomination in Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River says she is emphasizing the importance of a strong turnout from her supporters in advance of next week’s nomination meetings.


Joan Beatty estimates she sold around 800 party memberships before the deadline — and she’s predicting it will be a close race between her and rival David Orchard.


Even though she was the Liberals’ choice as a candidate in the March by-election, she says she doesn’t feel added pressure to win.


Party members in the riding will be voting in 10 communities next Thursday — including Prince Albert.
