Nickull was introduced by BC Conservative Party leader John Cummins and Vancouver campaign chair Rick Peterson, a former BC Liberal who sought a nomination in 2008 but has left the party since Clark became leader.
Nickull stressed his local roots - unlike Clark he lives in the riding - and local issues such as seismic upgrading of public schools and saving the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station.
The BC Conservatives issued this information about Nickull:
Duane was co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Yellow Dragon Software Inc., which he sold to Adobe Systems in 2003. He continued working for Adobe until 2011, when he launched a new venture, Technoracle Advanced Systems Inc.
