Earlier, we reported rumours Hospital Employees' Union secretary-business manager Judy Darcy was considering running for the provincial New Democrat nomination in New Westminster should MLA Dawn Black not seek re-election. So now that Ms. Black has announced she's retiring from politics, what does Ms. Darcy have to say about her political intentions? "I'm not going to be making any statements about that today," when asked whether she would be making a bid for that nomination. "I have huge admiration and respect for Dawn Black. I've worked with her over a number of years and I think she's been just a superb representative for this community - in Victoria and also federally...And I think today is about acknowledging Dawn Black and everything she's contributed."
