In for the long haul

Last week, The Vancouver Courier's Sandra Thomas quoted Non-Partisan Association councillor Kim Capri as saying she's had people "encourage" her to seek the provincial Liberal nomination in Vancouver-Fairview, adding "it's too early to say anything else." But if she did run, would Rick Peterson
- who's already making a bid for that nomination - step aside? In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Peterson said he's received a number of emails today suggesting Ms. Capri won't actually be putting her name on the ballot. But, even if Ms. Capri does enter the race, Mr. Peterson says he won't be dropping out. "We're fully committed to running and not really paying attention to who's looking at coming in or not. We're out selling memberships. We've got people on the streets now, meetings that we're holding. It's going really well Sean. So we're full-speed ahead." Moreover, Mr. Peterson, confirmed "no one has ever talked to him about stepping aside."
