Yesterday, we reported provincial Liberal legislator John Les had sent a message to "supporters and friends" soliciting opinions on whether he should "continue to run for re-election or "withdraw." Asked about that message by the Chilliwack Times's Paul Henderson, Mr. Les said, "I'm starting to get response and so far they've been quite favourable and in fact gratifying. But it's early on. I don't want to presuppose too much just yet." As for whether there was a chance he really would withdraw, Mr. Henderson paraphrased the former solicitor general as saying "he has his own thoughts on things, but he truly wanted to ask friends and supporters for any advice and thoughts on his own candidacy."
