Local North Island Member of Parliament John Duncan is going to be running again in the 2015 election.
He has just declared that he will be running in the new Courtenay Alberni riding, leaving a vacancy in the new Vancouver Island North riding that includes Comox and Powell River.
Duncan’s current senior advisor Laura Smith has announced she will be looking for the Conservative Party’s nomination in the Vancouver Island North riding.
The former forester says she has learned a lot from her mentor John Duncan.
Smith says she’s spent a lot of her life on the North Island and has lived in various local communities.
The nomination race is expected to open later in the summer.
