The Kootenay-Columbia Greens are gearing up for the next federal election with two contestants vying to become the next candidate for MP:

Bill Green of Kimberley and Keith Page of Nelson. On Sunday, November 2, Kimberley and Cranbrook locals will have a chance to meet both candidate nominees.

Everyone is welcome to meet the nominees on November 2: in Cranbrook at Hot Shots from 2-4 p.m. and in Kimberley upstairs at the library from 7-9 p.m. The nominees will be available to answer questions and Green Party memberships will be available.

Local Green party members go to the polls on December 6th to choose their candidate, who will start the 2015 campaign to send a third Green MP to Ottawa. All members who join the Green Party by November 6th are eligible to vote at the nomination meetings, which will be held in eight centres around the riding.

“We’re excited to have a couple nominees step up to the plate,” said Devon Caron, Kootenay-Columbia Green Party EDA, “and looking forward to generating some excitement by having a nomination vote networked between meetings in all the major centres on December 6.”

The nominees have already held meetings in Invermere, Golden, Revelstoke, Nelson, and Kaslo and will complete their tour with meetings in Creston and Fernie, covering all the major centres in this large riding.
