Video from CBC News:"When he jabbed me, I gave him back a jab on the arm," Woodstock said Thursday, adding he wants the NDP to withdraw Martin as a candidate. "And I look at him and I go — with a look on my face — 'really?'" Martin was not immediately available to comment Thursday. His campaign office said he was in a meeting. The race has already seen plenty of acrimony, mostly focused on where each candidate lives. Martin had threatened to sue his opponents, saying they were spreading false rumours that he lives on Saltspring Island in British Columbia. Martin has a cottage there, but lives just south of downtown Winnipeg, just outside the Winnipeg Centre boundaries. Ouellette's campaign team issued a statement acknowledging that Martin does not live in B.C., but pointing out that he has frequently been there and has strong links to the area that have been highlighted by New Democrats themselves. Ouellette, however, lives far from Winnipeg Centre, one of the poorest ridings in Canada, in the upper-middle-class suburbs near the south edge of the city. Woodstock has tried to capitalize on being the only candidate who currently lives in Winnipeg Centre. But in 2011, Elections Manitoba investigated a complaint from the NDP that Woodstock, who was running for the Liberals provincially, had provided a false address as his residence. The elections commissioner found that Woodstock had never lived at the address he provided, but had put a deposit down to buy the home. The purchase didn't go through and the commissioner decided to drop the matter. Allie Szarkiewicz is running for the Conservatives. She did not attend Wednesday's debate. Martin has held the seat since 1997, winning almost double the votes of his closest opponent in the last election.
