dalton-MarcThe petition to recall Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton has been cancelled.

Proponent Yvonne Hale contacted Elections BC about the move, while at the same time her lawyer filed a complaint saying BC Liberal Party Observers were interfering with the petition process.

Hale also has an illness in the family back east and isn’t able to be around to continue the recall effort.

She launched the petition because Dalton is running for the federal Conservative nomination while sitting as an independent MLA and she felt he should step down.
