Former islander among three running for NDP nomination

  • Jan. 26, 2005 6:00 a.m.

Three candidates, including a former islander, have stepped forward to run for the North Coast NDP nomination, the North Coast constituency association announced last week.
The three are Gloria Rendell, a former islander who works for Northern Savings Credit Union in Prince Rupert, Prince Rupert teacher Gary Coons and Prince Rupert CUPE leader and school trustee Russell Wiens.
Rod Kingsfield, president of the constituency association, said the three candidates “are all great people and the race could prove to be a close one”.
The NDP is holding an all-candidates forum this Saturday afternoon in Prince Rupert. Candidate selection and nomination will take place on Feb. 19. The winning candidate will represent the NDP on the North Coast, running against MLA Bill Belsey in the May 17 provincial election.
