Surrey-Newton provincial Liberal constituency association president Sonia Virk is looking for someone to run against incumbent New Democrat legislator Harry Bains during the next election. But some think she should be looking no further than herself. After all, Ms. Virk is past president of the Indo-Canadian Business Association and co-founder of Joomratty and Virk Barristers and Solicitors. But, in an interview with Public Eye, she declined to say whether she had been approached about putting her name forward for public office. "I'm not comfortable discussing this," said Ms. Virk. "I'm the president of the Surrey-Newton riding. And I'm involved in finding a candidate. We don't have a candidate yet. That's something I can tell you" - adding she wasn't personally interested in the nomination.
