Siksay won't run in next election
By Andrea Woo, Vancouver Sun December 17, 2010

Bill Siksay announced on Thursday that he will not run in the next federal election.

The NDP member of Parliament, who represents Burnaby-Douglas, said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon that "it just seems like time."

Siksay spent 25 years in federal politics, 18 of which were working as an assistant to former Burnaby-Douglas MP Svend Robinson, and almost seven as MP himself.

"I was elected and re-elected three times," Siksay said. "Few political careers span 25 years."

Siksay added he remains convinced that party leader Jack Layton's leadership "is exactly what Canada needs."

He will stay in office until his successor is chosen at the next election, which could be as early as next spring.

Siksay said he has no plans to remain in politics and is mulling over what to do next.
