- 2015 Federal Election
New federal Liberal riding
The new Federal Liberal Riding of Vancouver Island North/Comox/Powell River has launched a new team ready for the next election slated for Oct. 15, 2015.
The new executive includes: President: Janice Cashin, Vice President: Peter Schwarzhoff, Vice President Powell River: Kim Barton-Bridges, Treasurer: Mike Hendren, Secretary: Sandra Harrison, Organization: Hugh Stainsby, Membership: Gaye Doyle, Policy: Vivian Lochridge, Communication: Shannon Myers, Election Readiness: Dove Hendren, Volunteers: Debra Whitehouse.
The addition of the three new ridings that affect the North Island and Powell River: Courtenay/ Alberni, West Vancouver/Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island North/Comox/Powell River has created confusion in many areas, the most vital one being the complicated changes in boundaries. This wide area, that includes a ferry ride, will be difficult for all parties to negotiate.
