UPDATE - BC NDP Leader John Horgan sings the praises of Councillor Elliott as the BC NDP Candidate for Cariboo-North. Read more here
As I predicted back on January 3rd of this year -- current 2nd Term Quesnel City Councillor Scott Elliott announced yesterday that he will seek the BC NDP Nomination for Cariboo-North. View more here
Councillor Elliott was first elected in the 2011 City of Quesnel Local Government General Election
According to the Facebook page for the BC NDP's Cariboo-North Constituency Association - the formal nomination meeting to confirm the candidate for Cariboo-North for the BC NDP in this May's provincial election will take place on Sunday, February 12th 2-4PM at the "Lounge" - Quesnel and District Recreation Centre.

In my view - Councillor Elliott will be the only person to seek the BC NDP's nomination and consequently he will be confirmed as the official BC NDP Candidate for Cariboo-North on February 12th
Finally - should Councillor Elliott be confirmed as the BC NDP candidate in Cariboo-North, he will go up against incumbent Cariboo-North MLA/BC's Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction and Minister responsible for the Liquor Distribution Branch Coralee Oakes who announced last fall that she will seek a 2nd term in this May's provincial election.
As of this writing, no other provincial political party or independent has announced a candidate for Cariboo-North for this May's provincial election
