COMOX B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Courtenay-Comox, Ernie Sellentin. Sellentin operates a business in habitat restoration and invasive species reduction and has a BSc in Environmental Science from Royal Roads University.

“As someone who was born and lived in coastal B.C. for over 60 years, I have had many experiences and more than a couple of working careers”, Sellentin said. “I want to hear from the community and combine our skills to ensure a great future for the Courtenay-Comox riding and B.C.. As your B.C. Green Party MLA, I will work to change the current divisive politics in B.C. to a more cooperative approach.”
