Taleeb Noormohamed, 34, won the Liberal nomination race Saturday, edging out North Shore News sales manager Dee Dhaliwal approximately 460 votes to 430, according to unofficial tallies, reported North Shore News.

District of North Vancouver Coun. Roger Bassam came third in the race, with Kevin O’Brien, a former MLA in the Northwest Territories, a distant fourth.
