Burnaby mayor Derek Corrigan and former provincial cabinet minister Ed Conroy aren't expected to run in the next election. But their spouses just may. In an interview with Public Eye, Burnaby school trustee Kathy Corrigan confirmed she has been thinking about seeking the party nomination in Burnaby-Willingdon - a riding currently held by government backbencher John Nuraney. But Ms Corrigan adds, "I enjoy my (current) work a lot and it would mean a lot of travel. So, all things considered, I'm leaning against it." Meanwhile, in the heartlands, rumour has it that Katrina Conroy is looking at running against Minister of State for Resort Development Sandi Santori in West Kootenay-Boundary, possibly announcing her candidacy later this month.
