Former Conservative candidate Heather Leung says she plans to run as an Independent in her riding of Burnaby North-Seymour, despite the fact her affiliation will still be listed as Conservative due to Elections Canada rules.

When a party kicks out a candidate after Elections Canada's Sept. 30 deadline, their name still appears next to the party affiliation on printed ballots.

"I want everyone to know that you can still vote for me by putting a check mark by Heather Leung on the ballot even though Conservative appears by my name," said Leung in a statement issued Monday.
