PRINCE GEORGE B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Prince George-Valemount, Nan Kendy. Kendy worked as a Sessional Instructor in the School of Education at the University of Northern B.C. before retiring in 2012.
“During the last B.C. election I went to mark my ballot in the voting booth but there was no one representing the B.C. Green Party in our riding,” said Kendy. “I did not want this to happen again in this election. I am deeply passionate about the environment and the need to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. We need to conserve and sustainably manage the remaining natural resources in the north, for our children and their children. It is essential for me to be part of the process of reconciliation in BC and Canada. We need to recognize and respect Aboriginal rights.”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Kendy’s nomination.
“Nan is deeply connected to her community in Northern British Columbia,” said Weaver. “As a teacher and advocate for our water, she understands that true sustainability extends to society and the economy as well as the environment. I am thrilled she will be on the ballot with the B.C. Greens to offer the people of Prince George-Valemount an option for change on May 9.”
