Gurmant Grewal not seeking re-election

Here’s how the official story goes: Gurmant Grewal contacted the official party brass to tell them that he won’t be seeking re-election in the riding of Newton North Delta in British Columbia.

Now whether or not GG contacted the CPC or the CPC contacted GG about the news is up for anyone’s speculation. However, it doesn’t matter at this point, Gurmant isn’t running.

Grewal was seen by some party strategists as a stumbling block in what will be one of the most hotly contested provinces.
