The local Riding Association and Elizabeth May, Leader of The Green Party of Canada recently introduced their candidate for North Island Powell River.

We need to see a real change in Ottawa; a change that is people-driven,” stated the newly named candidate, Brenda Sayers.

The announcement on Sunday was made at the joint Federal/Provincial Green Party rally in Nanaimo and live-streamed across Canada. The party has now finalized the line-up of candidates for the seven Vancouver Island ridings.

As a proud member of the Hupacasath First Nation,  Sayers fought the ratification of the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) for the past two-and-a-half years on behalf of her community and of all people of Canada. This experience has given Sayers the determination and drive to continue working for Canadians’ rights and liberty.

I am excited and honoured to be the Green Party candidate for the North Island Powell River riding and I look forward to being part of a large Green Party caucus in Parliament,” said Sayers.

Sayers will be joined by Elizabeth May for her Campaign Launch at the K’omoks Big Hall (3330 Comox Road) on Friday, June 5 at 6 p.m.
