The Vancouver Centre NDP riding association is looking for a new candidate after the resignation of Randall Garrison as its candidate this week.
Garrison is citing personal reasons as a factor in his decision not to contest the riding currently held by Liberal MP Hedy Fry. Fry has held the seat for 15 years.
Garrison told Xtra West he was withdrawing for both personal and professional reasons.
Oh, the old "personal and professional" reasons excuse. Where have I had that one before? The timing is just too cute isn't it? Obviously, Mr. Garrison was so intimidated by the newly released Liberal Green Shift that he simply got "cold feet", afraid to campaign against this compelling initiative. I mean, Garrison was nominated months prior, then all of sudden The Green Shift comes out, and poof, I'm out outta here. You do the math.
