George Heyman was won the nomination as the BCNDP Candidate for Vancouver Fairview leaving city councilor Geoff Meggs either on city council or searching for a new seat.
This is good news for Vancouver taxpayers who just saved $1 million on the cost of a by-election assuming he does what he says and stays on council.
Most pundits had predicted this nomination would go the other way.
Both are excellent candidates and I am sure that George will represent the BCNDP well.
In fact George will probably keep Adrian Dix on his toes in that he would make an excellent leader himself.
