Thornthwaite appointed to succeed Jarvis

North Vancouver school board chair Jane Thornthwaite has been appointed the provincial Liberal candidate in North Vancouver-Seymour, Public Eye has learned. In an interview Wayne Hunter - who had previously announced he'd be running for that nomination - said the party told him about the appointment late last week. "We just ran out of time. It was a very unique situation. There was just no way to host and sponsor a nomination process," explained Mr. Hunter.

"There will be a formal, on-stage presence at the Holiday Inn tomorrow night" announcing Ms. Thornthwaite's appointment, he added. "I'm very happy for her and North Vancouver-Seymour will be well-represented."

Asked whether he was disappointed about not getting a chance to seek the Liberal nomination in that riding, Mr. Hunter said, "It was certainly a surprise to me. And most people who want to serve I think sometimes are disappointed initially. But, as with many things in life, certain doors close and other ones open. So, for the next little while I'll go back to business."
