    Thanks for your comment, Chris.

    The Green Party of BC would love to run a candidate in every riding. In some ridings, we have not been able to connect with anyone who is willing to run. We’ve tried, but sometimes no one steps forward.

    In the end, we have to focus the resources that we do have on ridings where we can find a candidate (and a team of volunteers to back that candidate). After we elect BC’s first Green MLAs this year, I think we’ll be better able to find candidates in all ridings.

    So, we encourage everyone who is, quite rightly, upset that there is no Green candidate in their riding, to get in touch with us so that we can connect you with other Greens in your riding. We can start building the relationships that allow us to field candidates in every riding in 2017 now.

    Thanks for your support and for taking the time to connect with us.

    I wish we could vote for the green party but was unable too. Read the email I sent to a number people and media outlets.

    Hello,
    My wife and I live in Nanaimo and unfortunately have to Vote in the Parksville Qualicum riding.

    The party that we want to vote for was not on the ballot when we went to our advanced voting station here in Nanaimo.

    I was told by the 2 people that I have 2 choices. First, don’t vote or second, spoil your ballot.

    I, as a long time voter ,have a duty/right to vote for the party that I think will best represent our province. By not voting or spoiling my ballot, like I was advised to do, how are we as citizens of British Columbia doing our duty and using our rights as citizens to make this province a place I or we would like to stay in ?

    If the party is not represented in our riding then the person closest to our riding that is representing that party must and should be on our ballots.

    I am absolutely disgusted with the way this is being done and feel like I have been screwed out of voting and trying to make a difference in this province. No wonder people are leaving faster than they are coming in. I think I will be on that train out of here very soon.

    Yours Truly

    Your vote does count and if you vote Green in a riding where the NDP could win and the Greens can’t, you are voting for the Enbridge Gateway and a huge expansion of tankers floating through the islands, one of which is almost sure to go aground. Think about it please and vote strategically for the candidate most likely to defeat the Liberals in your riding.
