Canada election: Port Moody-Coquitlam

There is going to be a new face representing Port Moody-Coquitlam. After 10 years in office, NDP MP Fin Donnelly decided not to run again this year.

The NDP are hoping Coquitlam city councillor Bonita Zarrillo will be the one able to hold the seat for the party.
