We could soon see the very first entry into the race to succeed NDP leader Adrian Dix at the helm of the provincial New Democrats. Burnaby MP Kennedy Stewart says he is looking very seriously at jumping in.
“Really I have been exploring entering the race to be BC NDP leader. I have been talking to people around the province. I have a team assembled that is helping me explore this and I have been hearing really good things. That doesn;t mean I am committed to getting in yet but I am leaning in that direction and really excited about the process.”
Stewart says he would not resign his position as NDP MP unless he decided to enter the provincial race and won it. He met with his team last night to map out when to make an official announcement one way or another.
