Kirk LaPointe plans to run for Vancouver mayor

Kirk LaPointe announced Monday that he will be a candidate for Vancouver's mayor under the banner of the Non-Partisan Association.
LaPointe, 56, said he is "now in control of the NPA" and had scrutinized all of the candidates for city council, park board and school board. He said those names will be rolled out over the coming days and weeks.
LaPointe said he was motivated to challenge Vision Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson for the top office at City Hall because he wants to open the city to more scrutiny.
LaPointe has served as CBC's Ombudsman. was managing editor of the Vancouver Sun and, briefly, the head of news at CTV.
