When provincial New Democrat leader Adrian Dix kicked off his campaign against the harmonized sales tax earlier this month, he didn't do so in the home of just any British Columbian. He did so in the home of Janet Routledge, who is presently running in what is expected to be a competitive race for the party nomination in Burnaby North. Ms. Routledge, a former regional director for the Public Service Alliance of Canada, also served as the British Columbia Federation of Labour's political action director. She is facing off against three other candidates - Ayesha Haider, Jordan Parente and Mondee Redman. This, according to the Burnaby NewsLeader's Adrian MacNair. The nomination meeting is set to take place on June 21.
