Tim Stevenson the NDP candidate who lost by 11 votes to Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt in Vancouver-Burrard, has dropped his legal case to have a by-election called due to irregularities.
Stevenson will run for city council this fall, joining Jim Green who will be announcing his intention to run for Mayor.
Stevenson cited a request from Green to drop the case and run for the City this fall.
In other news we heard yesterday that Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt will not face charges in an altercation with a street person earlier this year. The special prosecutor stated that there was little hope of a conviction given the evidence.
