Election 2015: NDP nominates FVRD director Dennis Adamson

Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon: Electoral Area B director will run in riding.

The NDP have announced their candidate for the newly created Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding.

Dennis Adamson, the director for Electoral Area B in the Fraser Valley Regional District, won a contested nomination Sunday, according to the NDP’s Tim Chu.

Adamson beat out Kevin Whitney, the chief of the T’it’q’et First Nation near Lillooet, for the nomination.

Chu said around 150 votes were cast, but did not provide a breakdown of those votes.

With Adamson now nominated, all four parties have now chosen candidates for the Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding, which includes parts of Abbotsford north of Bateman and Maclure roads, along with Mission, Agassiz and several Fraser Canyon communities up to Lillooet in the north.

Adamson will face Jati Sidhu of the Liberals, Arthur Green of the Green Party and Brad Vis of the Conservative Party, along with independent Wyatt Scott.
