VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Less than 24 hours before the opening of the polls for this year’s municipal vote, Vision Vancouver announced Wei Zhang’s nomination was being revoked for breaking party rules, but won’t say which one.
The party’s agreement says candidates have to abide by the their rules and bylaws.

A little over a month ago, Ian Campbell – who said in June he was proud to lead a new Vision team – stepped down as the party’s mayoralty candidate, citing personal reasons and what he called “the political landscape.”
Vision hasn’t endorsed anyone for mayor.
The 36-year-old Zhang will still be on the ballot, but it means Vision will only run four people for council.
Zhang has served as the Constitiuency Assistant to NDP MP Don Davies for the past five years.
