SIDNEY, BC–Green Party leader Elizabeth May won a landslide victory in the Green Saanich Gulf Islands nomination contest.
“It is so heartening to receive such an overwhelming vote of confidence from the grassroots of our membership,” said May in her victory address to over 100 members and guests attending the nominating meeting at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, BC. “I have been overwhelmed by the response from the community. I am ready to get on with the ‘real’ campaign – to win a seat in parliament. Every single day, voters in this riding tell me that they have worked or voted for other parties in the past, but now are uniting for real, positive change.”
John Fryer, May’s Campaign Manager, is extremely pleased with the result. “We’re ready and are mounting an ambitious campaign larger than any other in the history of this riding or the Green Party. This campaign will deliver Saanich-Gulf Islands with an MP that will bring unprecedented results, attention and a voice that will raise the level of debate in the House of Commons.”
Elizabeth May’s campaign office will open in the heart of the riding at 2417 Beacon Avenue in Sidney, BC. Elizabeth welcomes all supporters, regardless of political stripe, to join her in this historic campaign.
