More news from Babble. According to the rabble rousers, Adrian Dix, Premier Glen Clark's chief of staff, has won the provincial New Democrat nomination in Vancouver-Kingsway. Our unofficial correspondent Adam Tondowsky reports Mr. Dix received 330 votes on the first ballot. Former Peruvian revolutionary Alicia Barsallo came in with 171, followed by homebuilder Shavinder Parmar at 141 and ex-Filipino student activist Roberto Rous at 84. Messrs. Parmar and Rous withdrew before the second ballot, which Mr. Dix won with 264 votes to Ms. Barsallo's 236.
