LANGFORD B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Langford-Juan de Fuca, Brendan Ralfs. Ralfs is a provincial emergency manager on southern Vancouver Island, where he has helped communities respond to a broad array of weather-influenced emergencies, including floods, storms and drought.
“After spending 20 years as a forest firefighter in B.C. I am passionate about seeing our province protected for future generations,” Ralfs said. “I believe that Andrew Weaver and the B.C. Green Party are the clear choice to lead us in working together to ensure our home is a place where social justice prevails, the natural environment is protected and everyone has the opportunity to pursue their dreams while leading safe, productive lives.”
“I am honoured to welcome Brendan to our team. His experience managing emergencies across the province means he has a firsthand understanding of the impacts of climate change,” Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, added. “He’s a fighter, not just when it comes to forest fires, and I know he will fight for a brighter, more sustainable future for the people of Langford-Juan de Fuca.”
