Just as we thought—-longtime NDP MLA Brian Mason is throwing in the towel.
Not quite yet—-but he announced late this morning that he wont be running for re-election.
Mason has been an MLA since the year 2000—including leader of the NDP for ten years.
He was an Edmonton city councillor for 11 years before that….
He says one of the highlights of his provincial career—-was stopping the “third way” in healthcare in Alberta.
Mason says he’s been in the public arena for 29 years—and thats a long time for one person….so now is the time to “hang up his spurs.” (photo credit–CBC)
