Possibility of 1st Indigenous mayor of Vancouver prompts calls for more diversity in city politics

Ian Campbell's run to become a candidate for mayor of Vancouver could result in him becoming the first Indigenous person or person of colour to hold the position since the city was incorporated in 1886.

The Squamish Nation councillor announced Monday that he is seeking nomination to run for mayor under the Vancouver Vision banner — and that's sparked a lot of discussion about Indigenous representation in city politics.
