Today, the Vancouver Sun reported "Olympic gold medallist Daniel Igali is being courted by the B.C. Liberal party to run in the next provincial election...The Liberals' interest in Igali as a star candidate was confirmed by Tony Bhullar, the current MLA for Surrey-Newton, who said he is moving over to the riding of Surrey-Panorama Ridge at the request of the party to take on a tough fight against the new NDP MLA, Jagrup Brar." Public Eye broke that story yesterday. The Sun added, "the champion wrestler is also mulling an offer to be Nigeria's new minister of sport." And Terminal City columnist Ian King has posted some interesting background information about Mr. Igali on his Website.
