Kamloops This Week
There are officially four parties with nominated candidates in the riding, now that papers were signed last week for the Green party
Matt Greenwood, who last ran as a Green candidate in the 2006 federal election, will again represent the party in the federal election, which is set for Oct. 19.
He joins Liberal, NDP and Conservative candidates in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo.
“We’ve had a steady stream of volunteers expressing interest through the website,” Greenwood said.
The Green party candidate was to join the Liberals and NDP at the first electoral forum of the campaign on Tuesday evening in the Alumni Theatre of Thompson Rivers University’s Clock Tower Building.
Conservative MP Cathy McLeod declined to attend the forum, which was organized by Fair Vote Canada and which was to focus on electoral reform by asking the questions: Is our current electoral system serving us well? Does first-past-the-post truly make every vote count?
