KAMLOOPS – A well known Kamloops lawyer is in the running for the Green Party nomination in Kamloops for this fall's federal election.

Iain Currie is seeking the nomination for the Green Party of Canada in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo and in a video posted to his Facebook page, Currie says climate change is what’s pushing him to run for the Greens.

“Kids growing up today in Canada don’t get the same summer that I did, they get smoke season, some get evacuation season,” he says in the short video. “Addressing this emergency is too important to leave to the same old parties doing politics as they always do.”

Currie has worked as a crown prosecutor in Kamloops and the Okanagan on prominent homicide cases.

The Green Party is expected to have a nomination meeting sometime this month. No other candidate has announced any intention to run for the party nomination.

Conservative MP Kathy McLeod will be running for relection, while Terry Lake will represent the Liberal Party.

Federal election day is Oct. 21.
