HORSESHOE BAY B.C. – Sonia Furstenau, leader of the B.C. Greens, is campaigning in West-Vancouver-Sea-to-Sky with candidate Jeremy Valeriote today. Furstenau says the riding is within reach for the B.C. Greens.
“We know things are getting closer and closer in West Vancouver Sea-to-Sky,” said Furstenau.
“Voters of this riding have the ability to send Jeremy to Victoria to be a strong, local voice for immediate relief for small businesses, and to push for a clean recovery that embraces innovation and meets our climate targets. West Vancouver-Sea-to-Sky is among the best-placed regions to take advantage of the economic opportunities of a clean recovery.
“Jeremy is in this race for all the right reasons. He is incredibly thoughtful. He has strong ties to the riding, experience in local government and is running because he wants to build a better future for his young daughters. As a geological engineer, he will bring an invaluable evidence-based perspective to his legislative work. I can’t wait for him to join me in the Legislature.”
“The people of West Vancouver-Sea-to-Sky deserve collaborative and dedicated leadership,” added Valeriote.
“They should have a candidate who lives here and who is enthusiastic about representing them. I live in Whistler and understand the local issues. I believe in the opportunities in our region and am committed to serving the people of West Vancouver-Sea-to-Sky with integrity. I will join Sonia in standing up for a sustainable, secure future for our province.”
The B.C. Liberal incumbent, Jordan Sturdy, has been under fire for appearing in the video where Jane Thornthwaite made sexist comments about Bowinn Ma and for defending Laurie Throness as a “tolerant and loving” member of the B.C. Liberal caucus.
