If you attended the 2014 Chinese New Year Parade in Vancouver, chances are good you received a red envelope or two (without any lucky money though) from a politician you'd never heard of.
The annual parade attracts a herd of politicians hoping to keep their names and faces in the minds of voters, especially in a year featuring civic elections and a B.C. NDP leadership race.
Here's my photos of some of the politicians (and a few others) who hit the streets of Chinatown today (February 2), ostensibly to celebrate the Year of the Horse.
If you like a challenge, see how many pictured politicians you can name before looking at the photo cutlines.
Sure, Tom Mulcair, Jason Kenney, James Moore, Christy Clark, Adrian Dix, and Gregor Robertson are easy to identify, but you might have trouble with a few park commissioners and suburban MLAs.
