Controversy After Windsor West PC Vote

Some controversy after the nomination meeting to pick the federal candidate in Windsor-West for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Following the meeting and vote Sunday night, Henry Lau won by seven votes.

But fellow candidate Rinku Shah "may" appeal because there were more than a dozen people who wanted to vote, but couldn't because they didn't have proper ID.

People who vote must be a party member and a local resident.

"There is a 24 hour appeal period to follow up which Rinku Shah's campaign manager had texted me that they are going to look into that for clarification purposes," says Windsor-West Electoral District Association for the PCs President Al Teshuba.

Teshuba says about 80 people showed up for Sunday's meeting and if an appeal is launched, it will follow all the proper rules and regulations.

Windsor-West NDP MP Brian Masse won the nod to run for the NDP in the riding.

The Liberals have not picked a candidate yet.

The federal election is set for October 21.
