BC Conservatives fire third candidate

The B.C. Conservatives have fired their third candidate in a week.

Leader John Cummins says in a written statement that he has dumped Vancouver-West End candidate Ron Herbert, though he did not specify why.

He says a senior volunteer responsible for vetting candidates has also stepped down after the party was forced to fire two other candidates last week for making inappropriate comments.

A fourth candidate also stepped down in the midst of a drunk-driving investigation.

Meanwhile, NDP leader Adrian Dix has announced after a game of basketball with a youth in the Lower Mainland today that if elected, he will extend coverage of the provincial insulin pump program to young adults with serious diabetes.

Premier Christy Clark is expected to discuss affordability issues in Vancouver.
