KAMLOOPS — The Green Party of Canada will run a former Crown prosecutor for the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding in the upcoming federal election.

In a news release issued today, June 13, the Green Party says Iain Currie will be acclaimed as the candidate for the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding. Nominations closed yesterday, June 12.

“I will definitely not be running a doom and gloom campaign but rather one that will remind people what it’s like to be able to vote for something again,” Currie says.

Currie is currently practicing as a civil lawyer.

“Several people had initially contacted me to express interest in running and ask about the process for seeking the nomination but in the end, only Iain completed the entire application,” president of the local Green Party riding association Matthew Greenwood says in a news release. “At least one potential candidate bowed out after he found out who he would be competing against.”

An official nomination meeting will take place on June 26.

The federal election takes place on Oct. 21.
