SECHELT B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Powell River-Sunshine Coast, Kim Darwin. Darwin is a businesswoman and president of the Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce. She has also been active with the British Columbia and Canada Chambers of Commerce, and served as the B.C. Green Party Provincial Council secretary from 2014 to 2016.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named as the B.C. Green Party candidate for my community,” Darwin said. “I want to be an active and vocal advocate in the BC Legislature to help build a reliable future. As a Chamber of Commerce president and local businesswoman, I believe that the B.C. Green Party is the only party who has the vision and desire to foster and grow replacement industries, so that we have jobs to transition to as we commence the managed decline of the fossil fuel industry. We can have well-paying jobs, a strong economy and protect the environment at the same time and I am excited to be part of a team who will make this happen.”
“Kim Darwin is the type of leader we need in the Legislature”, added Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party and MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head. “She is deeply connected to her community, brings a strong entrepreneurial background and has an inspiring vision for our province’s potential in the 21st century. I am very excited to welcome her to our 2017 B.C. Green Team.”
