Oppal to announce switchero

The provincial Liberals' Delta South candidate selection meeting is scheduled to take place tomorrow night at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn. Our understanding is that's when Attorney General Wally Oppal will announce he'll be switching constituencies to run in that riding. Former West Vancouver chief constable Kash Heed has been touted to replace him in Vancouver-Fraserview. Nevertheless, if Mr. Heed does enter provincial politics, there's no guarantee he'll run in that riding. And some say he could also be considering a career in academia or federal politics.

If "Stonewally" runs in Delta South it will be a most interesting race. He will be up against independent Vicki Huntington, a long time councillor who finished a close second to the Liberal candidate last time. She can hold Wally Oppal's feet to the fire over the "gag law" he introduced and his belated discovery of the lower mainland drug gang problem. He also has to overcome his image of not knowing when to stop being a judge, lawyer and Campbell sycophant and start being sommeone his constituents can rely upon to speak for them.
