North Coast NDP members will choose their candidate in the coming election on Saturday. There are two candidates running, Joanna Larson of the Prince Rupert Teachers’ Union and Jennifer Rice, a city councillor in Rupert. Current MLA Gary Coons recently announced he would not seek the nomination this year. The candidate will be selected at a meeting in Prince Rupert on Saturday afternoon. The BC Liberals do not yet have a candidate for the North Coast riding and have not set a date for selecting one. The provincial election will be held on May 14.
