MLA expected to announce intentions for 2013 election this week

While several Liberal MLAs announced that they would not be seeking re-election, MLA Gary Coons says his decision will be known this week.

While a number of Liberal MLAs announced last week that they would not be seeking re-election in 2013, North Coast MLA Gary Coons says he will make his decision known this week.

Coons, who turned 62 last month and who has served as the MLA for the riding since 2005, had previously told the Prince Rupert Northern View that he was unsure he would be seeking the nomination again in 2013.
