KAMLOOPS - The New Democratic Party of Canada has announced its third replacement candidate for the October federal election.

Family justice counsellor Cynthia Egli has put her name forward under the NDP banner, according to a press release issued today, Sept. 23.

“I’m passionate about my community and am committed to making life better for everyday families, instead of wealthy corporations,” Egli says in the release. “I was raised on the values of putting people first, and that means fighting for workers, families, seniors, students, and those who have been left behind by Liberal and Conservative governments.”

The candidate works as a counsellor and mediator with the British Columba Ministry of the Attorney General and she is a member of the BCGEU provincial executive and is part owner of a small business.

Egli and her husband raised their two daughters in B.C.’s Interior. She holds a Master’s Degree in Leadership from Royal Roads University.

“The NDP’s A New Deal for People takes on the big polluters, drug companies, and corporate tax giveaways that have cost working people too much for too long,” Egli says. “Imagine a government led by people like me who have a history of standing up for ordinary people instead of protecting the rich and powerful. I’m in this for you.”

Egli is the third candidate in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo announced by the NDP during the campaign.

The first candidate, Gina Myhill-Jones, dropped out of the race in early August due to personal reasons and the second candidate, Dock Currie, had been asked to step down by the party as a result of a “problematic social media engagement two years ago.”
