Last night, renegade provincial New Democrats in Delta North ignored orders to cancel their nomination meeting and choose local councillor Guy Gentner as their election candidate, says party spokesman Scott Perchall. The provincial executive issued that cancellation order when Mr. Gentner's competitor Sukhinder Sandhu, a cabbie, filed a complaint about the fairness of the nomination process. Yesterday, Public Eye reported party headquarters wouldn't be accepting the results of the meeting. No word yet on how many people attended or whether a solution to the impasse has been found. Public Eye has been unable to independently confirm Mr. Gentner's nomination with constituency association president Ernie Fulton.
