The Tyee on Electoral Area 'A'

From online news source The Tyee's political blog "The Hook"

"A UBC professor is vying for Director in an election few people know is even taking place.

“It's a real head-scratcher,” laughed Charles Menzies, a professor of Anthropology running against four candidates in Metro Vancouver Electoral Area A. “People look at me quizzically when I tell them about the race.”

For the benefit of the head-scratchers, the electoral area is a seemingly haphazard collection of everything that’s not in another district.

It includes the University of British Columbia campus and endowment lands, Bowyer, Passage and Barnston islands and a large chunk of unincorporated land north of Metro Vancouver."
