The NDP has a new face to run in the provincial election in the Burnaby-Lougheed riding.
Jane Shin, a physician who works at Vancouver Community College, was selected at an NDP nomination meeting for Burnaby-Lougheed on Saturday.
"Jane is the first Korean-Canadian woman to run for the B.C. Legislature," said B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix in a press release. "Her background and experience as a medical professional, an entrepreneur and a community leader will offer a unique perspective and bring strong representation for the people of Burnaby-Lougheed."
Shin was born in South Korea and raised in British Columbia.
The Burnaby Lougheed riding is held by Liberal MLA Harry Bloy, who will not run in the election, scheduled for May 14, 2013.
