Parkgate All Candidates Meeting proved to be a lively one
Independent Candidate Jaime Webbe and NDP Candidate Jim Hanson seemed to be favoured by the audience at this meeting of 'most' of the candidates for North Vancouver-Seymour for next week's May 14 Provincial Election. BC Green Party Candidate Daniel Smith was absent again as it appears the Greens just want a name on the ballot come E-day. It was a lively and spirited debate among the candidates and one of the better ACM meetings I have attended over several elections. The main debate fell between BC NDP Candidate Jim Hanson and BC Liberal incumbent Jane Thornthwaite while BC Conservative Candidate Brian Wilson played a 'maverick' role in the discussions. I believe this is going to be a very close race between Thornthwaite and Hanson unlike many previous elections when the Liberal candidate could have been in their death bed and still win the election in North Van-Seymour. May 14, Election Day should very interesting here in NV-S for a change!
