Global Korean Post (Toronto) – On Sunday, May 28, the Ontario PC Party held the contest to nominate a candidate for the 2018 General Election in Willowdale.
The nomination meeting has attracted many attention for the Korean community especially as two Korean candidates, Daniel Lee and Stan Cho were in the final battle.
The vote began at 2 pm and closed at 6 pm at Korean Garden Church.
After almost one hour vote counting, the winner is announced to be Stan Cho.
Bob Stanley, campaign manager for the nomination meeting said in an interview with the Global Korean Post that the total number of voters were 1,156, but he did not disclose the final results for each candidate.
Stanley said, “It is very clear contest. It is great to see the support for both candidates. I am pleased to see their involvement. We think that Stan will be an excellent candidate for the party.”
The nominee, Stan Cho, will compete with Liberal MPP David Zimmer, Ontario’s Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation at the Willowdale district in 2018 provincial election.
David Zimmer, who has had an interview with the Global Korean Post last April, visited Korean along with Kathleen Wynn, Ontario Premier last December. Minister Zimmer has been elected four times in the provincial election since 2003.
