Kitsilano’s Mel Lehan has confirmed that he would like to represent the NDP in the upcoming Vancouver-Point Grey by-election. Community activist Lehan is the only New Democrat who’s stepped forward for the party’s nomination in the riding that was just vacated by Gordon Campbell.
According to a CKNW report today, Lehan expects to run against Premier Christy Clark in a by-election, but says he’ll be ready if they face off in a general election, “I want us to take a direction that always remembers that people, the environment and the economy are all equally important and we have to work together to build those.”
The NDP has appeared desperate in their search for a fresh face in Vancouver-Point Grey but it no one else throws their hat in the ring Lehan will likely get party approval to be the NDP candidate for the riding.
