Today, in the legislature, Liberal backbencher Joan McIntyre announced she will have "pleasure of attending the opening of Dundarave's redeveloped MarketPlace IGA. While the opening of a new supermarket may not be too significant to some, what the developers incorporated should be, as they have a concept that incorporates the new variety of housing that West Vancouver so badly needs...I hope that here in the House today, you'll help me congratulate all those involved from the property owner, the architects, the developer, H.Y. Louie Co. in rebuilding their MarketPlace IGA." Not mentioned in that speech though was the fact the former pollster once worked for IGA Canada operator H.Y. Louie Co. via her husband Andrew Pottinger's consulting company, AJ Pottinger & Associates Ltd. And Mr. Pottinger presently serves as a community relations advisor for London Drugs, which has been owned by H.Y. Louie Co. since 1976.
