StarMetro Vancouver - - NEWS - JEN ST. DE­NIS

more: the City of Nanaimo, or the NDP govern­ment pre­car­i­ously hold­ing onto power in Vic­to­ria?

The long­time MLA for Nanaimo is ex­pected to an­nounce a run for mayor of the mid-sized Van­cou­ver Is­land town on Wed­nes­day. Nanaimo has been rocked by a se­ries of gov­er­nance scan­dals, in­clud­ing a law­suit brought against the mayor by the city and the ar­rest of the city man­ager for al­legedly mak­ing threats against the mayor.

But Krog’s move could change the balance of power for the pro­vin­cial govern­ment, where the NDP are gov­ern­ing with the sup­port of the Greens, for a com­bined to­tal of 44 seats.

What Krog’s de­ci­sion means for the po­lit­i­cal land­scape at thes­
