Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Mr. George Chow!

Councillor George Chow confirmed today what many had hoped for but few felt they could count on: he is running for re-election as a Vision Vancouver councillor. Gregor Robertson and Raymond Louie celebrated the announcement at the Floata in front of an enthusiastic crowd of more than 200, including many leaders of Chinatown’s business community. He may be the last declared Vision candidate for council – but there’s still two days for new contenders to come forward. Frances Bula does a good job of summing up George’s qualities here.
