In transit

Earlier this month, The Vancouver Sun's Janet Steffenhagen reported former British Columbia Teachers' Federation president Jinny Sims would be seeking the provincial New Democrat nomination in Vancouver-Kensington. But she's not the only candidate running in that race. Canadian Auto Workers Local 111 union and politics committee chair Mable Elmore is also a contestant, having already submitted her nomination papers.

Ms. Elmore worked as a British Columbia Federation of Labour regional political coordinator during the last provincial election. Three years ago, she also made a failed bid to become the federal New Democrat candidate in Vancouver-Kingsway. A date for the provincial nomination meeting in that riding has yet to be set. Although it's expected to happen sometime between February 15 to 28.
