Lək̓ʷəŋən [Lekwungen] Territory / Victoria B.C. – The B.C. Green Party has announced the candidacy of David Evans for the upcoming provincial election in the Juan de Fuca-Malahat riding.

"I am thrilled to welcome David to our distinguished slate of candidates for 2024," said Sonia Furstenau, leader of the B.C. Green Party. "David’s dedication to his community and forward-thinking leadership qualities exemplify the kind of visionary candidates representing the party."

David Evans, a local business owner and community advocate in Juan de Fuca-Malahat, said, "It's an honour to serve my community, especially at such a critical time. I am committed to enacting practical solutions that honour the 'sapphires and emeralds' of our unique local environment in Juan de Fuca-Malahat while also fostering a resilient local economy."

The announcement follows a nomination contest, reflecting the party’s commitment to grassroots participation and democratic selection. David Evans secured 70.2% of the vote under the single transferable vote system.
