From Burnaby to Coquitlam
Lenoski, who was communications chair of Michael Ignatieff's 2006 B.C. leadership campaign, rode the Liberal collapse in B.C. to just 15.4% of the vote in Burnaby-New Westminster last October. Even during the last election Lenoski was hoping Ignatieff would take charge of the party.
Lenoski, a veteran Liberal who worked for Liberal governments in the late 1960s, ran now MP Joyce Murray's New Westminster-Coquitlam campaign during the 2006 election. If he wins the nomination, Lenoski will be the last major party candidate into the by-election race. The other candidates are Conservative Diana Dilworth, NDPer Fin Donnelly, and Green Rebecca Helps.
