Rebecca Bligh was one of five Non-Partisan Association candidates elected to Vancouver council last year. Late Friday afternoon, Bligh announced she was quitting the party and would sit as an independent.

The NPA, an 82-year-old centre-right political force in Vancouver, had changed, she said.

In late November, 10 new directors were elected to the 15-person NPA board. They included Christopher Wilson, until two years ago the B.C. bureau chief for the right-wing Rebel Media and best known for being slapped down by then-federal environment minister Catherine McKenna.
