George Chow looking at provincial NDP run in Vancouver-Langara
He could easily have won reelection but didn't seek a third term on Vancouver city council. Instead, George Chow went for the B.C. NDP nomination in Vancouver-Fraserview last year, and lost.
Now the former two-term councillor wants another chance. And he's serious enough that he's signed up new members for the provincial left-of-centre party in Vancouver-Langara. But, typical of Chow, he remains coy about his plans. Yet he's not too reticent to note that he's received a “good response” from voters in this B.C. Liberal stronghold represented by MLA Moira Stilwell.
“They're not happy with the government,” Chow told the Straight in a phone interview.
While he maintained that it's “still early” to talk about his intentions in Vancouver-Langara, Chow confirmed that his eyes remain set on the provincial arena.
“I was in council for six years,” Chow said. “I learned a lot and contributed a few things. I think I could make more contributions on the provincial level.”
