MP's son eyes council

A Vancouver community advocate will make a second attempt to win a city council seat for the Green party.

Pete Fry is the son of longtime member of Parliament Hedy Fry, and he's been acclaimed as the Green party of Vancouver candidate for a byelection in October.

If successful, he would join sole Green politician Adriane Carr, who is among the city's 10 councillors — five representing the Vision Vancouver party and three elected under the Non-Partisan Association banner.

Fry says in a news release that there is a lot more the Green party can do for Vancouver with another member assisting Carr.

He ran unsuccessfully for the Greens in the city's 2014 civic election and lost to the New Democrats in a 2015 provincial byelection to replace Jenny Kwan when she was elected federally.

Anti-poverty advocate Jean Swanson will run as an independent in the October campaign while civic activist Judy Graves seeks a nomination later this month in a byelection to replace Geoff Meggs, who resigned to become the new premier's chief of staff.
