Health is where her heart is

Last month, Vancouver-Kensington provincial New Democrat legislator David Chudnovsky announced he wouldn't be running for re-election. So who's going to be replacing him? Well, in an interview with Public Eye, Hospital Employees' Union secretary-business manager Judy Darcy said she had considered making a bid to succeed Mr. Chudnovsky. But "I've decided to stay where I am. My heart is in healthcare. I have spent my life working for working people. And it's what I love the most. I'm flattered to be asked and it would be a great honour. David Chudnovsky has not just been a fabulous MLA but he is also one of my oldest and dearest friends - and I mean oldest. I mean we went to university in the sixties together. But there's a lot to do in my job. There's huge challenges coming in healthcare - including bargaining in 2010. And I love what I do. And I'm committed to staying here."
