WEST KELOWNA – A fourth candidate has thrown his hat into the ring in the upcoming byelection in Kelowna West riding.

Kyle Geronazzo is running for the B.C. Libertarian Party.

Geronazzo says he decided to run for the Libertarian Party because he doesn’t think the province’s two big parties have the interests of the people at heart.

“They want you to help them help themselves, whereas I want to help you help yourself,” he says in a video posted to his Facebook page.

Geronazzo was born in Kamloops and lived in Prince George before moving to Kelowna, according to his Facebook page.

“I pin myself as a family man at hear and believe that giving the next generation more choices in their economic freedoms is the key to creating a more prosperous future for us all,” he says.

Geronazzo is running against former B.C. Liberal MLA Ben Stewart, B.C. NDP candidate Shelley Cook whose acclaimation was announced earlier this month and the B.C. Green Party’s choice Robert Stupka.

The byelection in Kelowna West was called following the resignation of former Premier and B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark after her government lost a confidence vote weeks after the general election.

The government has until Feb. 4, 2018 to call a byelection.
