Cantelon coy on electoral future

Parksville-Qualicum MLA says he still has a passion for the job

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon is still considering his options in terms of whether he plans to run in the next provincial election.

Cantelon, who suffered a heart attack last year, said he still has a passion for the job, despite his health challenges.

“You get involved to make a difference,” he said. “I’m just getting good at it.”

He said he would still like to push for wealth creation on Vancouver Island, as well as a shift to get more chemical products from wood, rather than just lumber and pulp.
