Suzanne Anton seeks Liberal nomination in Vancouver

Former Vancouver city councillor Suzanne Anton has announced she is seeking the B.C. Liberal nomination for Vancouver-Quilchena.

The riding is currently held by former Liberal cabinet minister Colin Hansen, who has already announced he does not plan to run in the upcoming May election.

Anton was first elected to the park board in 2002, then to city council in 2005 and 2008. In 2011 she ran for mayor for the NPA, but lost to Gregor Robertson.

She will be running against former party president Andrew Wilkinson, for the nomination.
