Powell River-Sunshine Coast NDP candidate Nicholas Simons expects to be back on the campaign trail… on crutches.

Simons suffered a dislocated left ankle last night and wasn’t able to attend the riding’s All Candidates Meeting.

He sent out a tweet saying that “campaigning can be dangerous. I’ve never seen my ankle from this angle. I’ll be ok.”

Simons is running against the BC Green Party’s Kim Darwin and the Liberals’ Sandra Stoddart-Hansen.
