Just came to my attention that NDP MP Dawn Black might jump into the provincial arena to represent the vacant provincial seat of New Westminster.
New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Dawn Black is seriously contemplating a move into provincial politics. "I am giving it serious consideration," Black told The Record by telephone from Ottawa Thursday. "There is a vacancy." Black said she has to make a decision soon. She's expected to meet with local NDP officials this weekend, after returning from Ottawa.
Frankly, I hope she doesn't jump as the provincial riding of New Westminster is a safe NDP seat.
More importantly, when a by-election occurs, it might be tough to hold Dawn's seat considering her relatively narrow 3%/1,500 vote winning margin last year.
