While the NDP announced their first candidate for the next provincial election last week, North Coast MLA Gary Coons says his candidacy depends on when Premier Christy Clark calls the next election.

While the NDP announced their first candidate for the next provincial election last week, North Coast MLA Gary Coons says his candidacy depends on when Premier Christy Clark calls the next election.

Responding to an inquiry from the Prince Rupert Northern View about his plans for the future, Coons said he would definitely seek the nomination again if an election is held this fall as many anticipate. However, if the next election is held as scheduled in 2013, Coons said it “may be questionable” if he would seek re-election.
