Joy MacPhail and Shane Simpson (Vancouver Sun)
Shane Simpson a well known local city planner will be the NDP candidate. Simpson won on the second ballot.
Joy spoke at the nomination meeting where she told Gordon Campbell every time he lies in the house she and the NDP will call it what it is, a lie. Shapes up to be a very busy and exciting round in the legislature in BC.
