BC Green Candidate Joins Race in PG-Valemount
Prince George, B.C. – A third candidate – Nan Kendy – has entered the race in Prince George-Valemount for the B.C. Green Party.
250News was unable to reach Kendy but in a posting on the Green Party website it says she’s lived in the riding since 2006.
It also says she was an elementary school teacher and taught grades K-6 for about 20 years. Following that she worked as a sessional instructor in the School of Education at UNBC from 2007-2012.
In a posting, she states she’s “deeply passionate about the environment and global warming and the need to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels” and notes “we need to recognize and respect Aboriginal rights, land claims, languages and Indigenous knowledges.”
“During the last B.C. election, I went to mark my ballot in the voting booth but could not find the Green Party candidate to put my X beside!” she said. “There was no one representing the B.C. Green Party in our riding. I did not want this to happen again in this election, so I stepped forward and became a candidate.”
The other declared candidates are Liberal incumbent Shirley Bond and the NDP’s Natalie Fletcher.
