Mayor Sam Sullivan said Monday he expects to run next year's mayoral election against the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
Sullivan told The Vancouver Sun's editorial board he thinks this summer's civic strikes were about who runs the city and that the fight will extend to next year's elections.
"They wanted to see a CUPE mayor running city council," Sullivan said of the three CUPE locals that went on strike.
"This strike will not be truly resolved until Nov. 15, 2008," Sullivan said. "I think the battle lines are drawn and it will be an interesting year. . ,"
