Last month, provincial New Democrat president Jeff Fox stepped down. And his replacement Sav Dhaliwal has said doesn't intend to run for that post at the party's upcoming November convention. So who is going to make a bid for that job? Well, how about British Columbia Federation of Labour policy development director Lynn Bueckert, who is also the assistant to its president Jim Sinclair? Asked whether she was interested in heading the party, Ms. Bueckert said, "I haven't ruled it, let's put it that way. But I haven't put forward any kind of indication that I'm going to do so. I'm a (party) table officer and have been for the last four years and there's a vacancy. So, of course people always think about these things. I'm sure all table officers are thinking about it. But, really, that's as far as its gone."
