More news from the muddied waters of Surrey-Panorama Ridge. In interview with Public Eye, Radio Punjab news director and talk show host Harjinder Thind confirmed he was recently approached to run for the provincial Liberal nomination in that riding. But Mr. Thind told us, "then I thought, I'm going to continue what I'm doing. So I decided not to go for it." He declined to identify who had approached him, except to say it was "people for the B.C. Liberals." Earlier, Public Eye reported rumours trucking company owner Bob Hans was considering contesting backbencher Tony Bhullar for the Surrey-Panorama Ridge nomination.
