VERNON – Liberal party members in the riding of North Okanagan-Shuswap chose a candidate for the upcoming federal election at a nomination meeting on the weekend.

Cindy Derkaz will carry the Liberal colours in the 2015 campaign.

Derkaz has lived in Salmon Arm for 55 years and is best known for work with the Shuswap Community Foundation.

“Many people here in the riding have become increasingly concerned about the direction Canada has been taking under the Harper Conservative government,” Derkaz said in her nomination speech. “I believe that another 5 years of this government will fundamentally and irreversibly change the Canada we think we live in.”
