LANGFORD B.C. – B.C. Green Party leader Sonia Furstenau and Langford-Juan de Fuca candidate Camille Currie held a rally at the W̱MÍYEŦEN Nature Sanctuary (formerly Mary lake) last night, attended by a packed room of people.
Other speakers included MLA Adam Olsen and the new B.C. Greens Executive Director, Edoye Porbeni. Attendees raised thousands of dollars following a powerful speech by Furstenau who urged the crowd to get behind Camille to make positive change in Langford-Juan de Fuca.
“As our by-election campaigns reach the finish line, the party’s momentum is only growing”, Furstenau said. “British Columbians need MLAs like Camille Currie who are proven, grassroots changemakers in their communities. By adding Camille to the B.C. Green caucus, this riding can multiply the impact of our work. Last night’s rally and fundraiser was electric - a clear indication to me that Camille and the B.C. Greens are really resonating with voters in Langford-Juan de Fuca.”
“This by-election won’t change the government, but it will change who represents Langford-Juan de Fuca to the government”, Currie added. “We are going into the last two days of advance voting in a strong position. I hope to be able to continue my healthcare advocacy work alongside leader Sonia Furstenau and MLA Adam Olsen in the legislature. The three of us will be a powerful team who will stop at nothing to improve the health and wellbeing of all British Columbians.”
