Prince Rupert residents will have the opportunity to meet another prospective leader of the provincial NDP this week as John Horgan makes his way to town on Wednesday.
Horgan will be meeting with party members and the public from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and, like previous NDP leadership candidate Mike Farnworth, the event will be held at the Oceanview Restaurant.
Horgan was elected in 2005 and 2009 and represents the sprawling constituency of Juan de Fuca, but spent many years before that with different positions in government that included serving as Chief of Staff to interim premier Dan Miller. He currently lives in Langford with Ellie, his wife of 26 years.
The NDP will choose its new leader on April 17.
