B-C Liberals have replaced Sukh Dhaliwal with a new candidate in Surrey Panorama, but it wasn't without some drama behind the scenes.
As Surrey Councillor Marvin Hunt becomes the Liberals new guy in the riding, it turns out it was at the expense of a familiar name.
Sources tell CKNW former B-C Conservative Party dissident Doctor Allison Patton was also in the running for the nomination.
It has been confirmed that Patton recently took out a membership with the B-C Liberals.
A source also says Patton was given the impression some time ago she would get a shot at a nomination for the Liberals.
It's also worth noting Hunt was acclaimed without a nomination race or subsequent vote by riding Liberals.
Sukh Dhaliwal was removed as candidate in the riding after running afoul of Revenue Canada.
Patton had her B-C Conservative membership revoked for opposing Leader John Cummins, which led to a court battle.
