North Van councillor considers Liberal nomination

North Vancouver city councillor Mike Little has confirmed he's considering running for the provincial Liberal nomination in North Vancouver-Seymour. That riding is presently held by party MLA Jane Thornthwaite. Speaking with Public Eye, Mr. Little stressed such a run is dependent on the Liberals allowing incumbent candidates like Ms. Thorntwaite to be challenged. Moreover, he said, "I have no interest in embarrassing the current candidate or the party and I want to work with them."

"I've known her for quite a long time," the councillor continued. "As long as she's been involved in politics I've been dealing with her. But there are a lot of people in the community who think it would be a good role for me and I'm considering my options. Likewise, if the party doesn't allow a challenge then I will still be on council and she will still be my MLA and I will still work with her."

First of all, the incumbent MLA has taken care of embarassing herself due to her drinking and driving episode during the winter olympics.

If she chooses to run again there is a good chance that you may still be on city council, but it is less likely that she will still be your MLA.

She sure somehow managed to keep her present job, but maybe the Liberals are still influenced by ex King Gordo's hollow excuses for drunk driving, a bit of crying seems to help( It did for him

I do not think this would be the time to run as a Liberal, it may be better for you to run as a NDP or a BCC, I switched from Liberal to BCC like many others are.
