The Green Party’s drive to find a candidate to run in the Boundary Similkameen riding has, so far, been unsuccessful.
Local organizers held a series of meetings last week in Oliver, Princeton and Grand Forks hoping to find a candidate for the far-flung riding.
Green Party organizer, Dave Cursons of Cawston, says he is still hopeful a Green Party candidate can be found to run in the May 9 provincial election. Deadline to register a candidate with Elections BC is April 18.
The writ is expected to drop April 11, and Boundary Similkameen NDP candidate Colleen Ross (Grand Forks) and incumbent Liberal candidate Linda Larson (Oliver) are already prepping for debates.
All candidates forums have already been set up for March 21 in Okanagan Falls in the Recreation Centre, 1141 Cedar St.; Oliver on March 22 in Frank Venables Theatre, 6100 Gala St; March 23 in Osoyoos at the Sonora Community Centre, 8505 68th Ave.
Start time for all three forums is 7 p.m., and questions can be sent in beforehand. Send your question and which location you will be attending to firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop it off at the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce, 6237 MainSt., Oliver.
Deadline for submitting questions is 9 a.m. on March 20.
