The deputy leader of the provincial Green Party is planning to be in Campbell River next Thursday for a community forum.
Sonia Furstenau, the MLA for Cowichan Valley, is slated to discuss the Green Party’s plans and its record since last year, when it helped the NDP to form a minority government.
Campbell River is part of the North Island riding, which is represented by NDP MLA Claire Trevena, the provincial minister of transportation and infrastructure.
In last year’s election, Trevena won the seat with 47.7 per cent of the vote, ahead of BC Liberal Party candidate Dallas Smith, who garnered 35.3 per cent of votes.
The Green Party candidate, Sue Moen, took away 14.8 per cent of votes, coming in third.
Furstenau is one of three Green Party MLAs holding the balance of power in the B.C. legislature. The NDP has 41 seasts, while the Liberal Party has 42.
