Chamber of commerce chair steps down

The federal election of Oct. 19, 2015 is still more than a year away but the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce's board chair has stepped down from her post to pursue the Conservative party nomination for the newly formed Port Moody-Coquitlam riding.

In Janine Davies's absence, the business organization will continue to be helmed by executive director Michael Hind and the remaining chamber executive.

New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP Fin Donnelly has also said he will seek a seat in the new riding, created after an electoral boundary review.

Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam Conservative MP James Moore has confirmed he will run in the new riding of Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam.
