All three Burnaby New Democrat MLAs endorse John Horgan in his bid for the B.C. NDP leadership.

Last weekend, Horgan announced he had 10 more MLAs supporting him, including Burnaby Edmonds' Raj Chouhan, Burnaby-Deer Lake's Kathy Corrigan and Burnaby Lougheed's Jane Shin.

There are now 15 MLAs in total supporting the MLA for Juan de Fuca. So far his only competitor in the leadership race is MLA Mike Farnworth (Port Coquitlam).

"John gets that working families who are struggling to make ends meet in Burnaby and across the province rely on public services," said Corrigan in a press release. "John is a leader who will make life better for all British Columbians."
