MONTREAL - Justin Trudeau has vowed that anyone who wants to run for the Liberal party in the next election, himself included, will have to win a fair, open nomination contest.
But that doesn't mean he won't try to influence the outcome of those contests.
Indeed, his marked preference for certain contenders has created murmurs of discontent at the Liberal convention, where the leader's hand-picked star recruits have been on prominent display.
Privately, some Liberals grumble that Trudeau is tipping the scales by promoting his favoured contenders.
