And then there were four.

Christina Yahn, Libertarian candidate in Kootenay-Columbia for the upcoming federal election, announced her resignation from the race early Sunday morning in an email letter to Kootenay Black Press editors.

“Due to personal reasons, I regret to announce my resignation as a candidate for the 2015 election,” Yahn wrote.

“I wish the best to fellow candidates and I look forward to future political endeavours when I am able to participate.

“I appreciate being included in the Q&A series thus far to offer the perspective of liberty.”

Yahn’s resignation leaves Bill Green of the Green Party, Don Johnston of the Liberals, Wayne Stetski of the NDP and incumbent MP David Wilks of the Conservatives to contest the election, with just over three weeks remaining in the campaign.

Our Black Press Q&A continues (Part IV) with those four candidates in Tuesday’s Townsman/Bulletin.
