VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The BC Liberals are going to be down another high-profile MLA in the next election.

News1130 has confirmed that Kash Heed will not run in next year’s election, however Heed will not be commenting on his decision at this time.

Earlier this week, the MLA for Vancouver-Fraserview told the Asian Journal that he’s tired of the bureaucracy of dealing with policy changes, especially with gangs and drugs, and is also critical of recent cabinet choices. Heed says he will continue advocating and pushing for changes in the policing structure in the province.

Political scientist Peter Prontzos expects more Liberals will be making their exits because of the party’s sagging popularity.

“The more realistic amongst the MLAs, realizing that and trying to abandon the sinking ship,” he stresses. “It seems like not only have the Liberals and Christy Clark reached a new low, but it would be difficult for them to turn things around I think,” he explains.

Heed briefly served as BC’s solicitor general in 2010 before resigning over violations of the Elections Act.
