Antle is probably best known for coming in second behind Dwight Ball in the Liberal leadership race last year.
“I have been active in the Liberal Party for over 20 years, and I firmly believe in its fundamental principles,” Antle said in a news release. “Dwight Ball is a smart guy and I like his plan to build a team of strong leaders. I would like to be on that team and help Dwight bring about the change we so badly need for our province.”
The district is currently held by New Democrat MHA George Murphy.
