Our thoughts and prayers go out to Derek Zeisman on a speedy recovery.No word that I could find about the occupants of the other car.

Tory candidate injured in car accident, but expected to resume campaign

CASTLEGAR, B.C. (CP) -- A Conservative candidate in the federal election is recovering in hospital after a two-vehicle crash in the West Kootenay.

Derek Zeisman is running in the riding of British Columbia Southern Interior, held in the last Parliament by Tory Jim Gouk.

B.C. party spokesman Colin Metcalfe told CKNW radio in Vancouver that Zeisman was seriously injured while en route to Castlegar from Trail on Tuesday afternoon, but he is expected to return to the campaign for the Jan. 23 election.

"The conditions, I believe, were icy and as it stands today (Wednesday) he's listed as being in serious but stable condition," said Metcalfe.

Zeisman began working as Gouk's part-time constituency assistant last year. He had previously served as Gouk's parliamentary assistant, working in both his Ottawa and Castlegar offices.
