DescriptionMeet the Prez: Iggy's man is in without a fight

Alf Apps, a well-connected Bay Street lawyer and one of the Liberals responsible for plucking Michael Ignatieff from Harvard and bringing him back to Canada, is set to become the party's next president. He will be unopposed at the party's convention in Vancouver in late April.

He will replace Doug Ferguson, who stepped in after Senator Marie Poulin resigned for health reasons. Mr. Apps, with his larger-than-life personality, was in Ottawa this week meeting with Liberal caucus members.

The expectation among some senior Liberals is that the convention, which was originally designed to elect a leader to replace St├ęphane Dion, will be an Iggy love-in, showcasing the new leader.
