B.C. Finance Minister Carole James diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, will not seek re-election

Deputy Premier and Finance Minister Carole James has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and will not seek re-election next year.

The long-time politician says she is hoping to complete her political term and will not run again in the next provincial election.

“I went to my family doctor at the end of August and I mentioned at the end of my session I had some symptoms. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease,” James said Thursday.

“There isn’t a cure and there is no way to stop the progression. Right now I have a hand tremor which is manageable. There is no need now to start on medication.”
