I posted last night that I was wondering if the Non-Partisan Association would bring its 10th candidate up to scratch by this morning. They did, but not the retired police officer I’d been hearing rumours about. Instead, we got the news as we came into the NPA nomination meeting this morning that the the new candidate is Kanman Wong. Wong ran for the Conservatives in 2006 in Vancouver Kingsway but was defeated by, you guessed it, that noted Liberal David Emerson.
Wong, whose Wikipedia entry says he provides computer equipment for film productions, will be speaking at the meeting here later this morning. I hope he can make himself heard over the chitchat of the couple dozen party faithful who have turned up this morning to do their political duty, even while the sun is shining outside.
By the way, the school board slate still has empty spots that weren’t filled by the time the meeting started.
