As for choosing to run in the Courtenay-Alberni riding instead of his old riding, which now includes Powell River, he says he has been supporting and mentoring Laura Smith, his former advisor, for quite a number of years to take over in Vancouver Island North.

He says with the redistribution of the ridings, that made sense.
