The provincial New Democrat nomination race in Burnaby-Willingdon has become a coronation. According to our spies, Asian Star proprietor Umendra Singh sent a letter to party secretary Gerry Scott yesterday, requesting his name be withdrawn from the race. That clears the way for Chinese media commentator Gabriel Yiu to be acclaimed this weekend. Mr. Yiu will be running against Liberal backbencher John Nuraney in the upcoming election.
