Andrew Younger wins; Jim Smith, Debbie Hum, Steve Streatch lose

Councillors running for provincial office do poorly

Four Halifax councillors ran for provincial office but only one---Andrew Younger---prevailed. Younger’s win was all the more remarkable because he bucked the trend and bested sitting NDPer Joan Massey. Expect Younger to go places in the Liberal Party.

A byelection will be called to replace Younger on council; as yet, there’s no indication who will run.

Jim Smith, Debbie Hum and Steve Streatch utterly failed in their various election bids. Back to cat bylaws for them.
