Election 2015: Greens back out of Kelowna – Lake Country riding

Gary Adams, the candidate who won the nomination on a platform of co-operation, committed to withdrawing from the race

The Kelowna Federal Green Party will not be running a candidate in the 2015 election, nor will they be endorsing any other party or candidate.

“The Green Party of Canada respects grassroots decision-making and the results of the nomination meeting held in July, which was well-informed and held in accordance with the constitution,” said Zena Ryder CEO Kelowna Lake Country branch of the Green Party, in a press release.

Gary Adams, the candidate who won the nomination on a platform of co-operation, committed to withdrawing from the race in advance of the election.

“While Adams will not appear on the ballot, the Kelowna Federal Green Party Executive will not be endorsing or supporting another political party or candidate in order to avoid creating any false impression that the Green Party endorses another party,” Ryder said.

“As there will be no Green Party candidate to campaign or vote for, Adams and other members are free to volunteer as individuals for any campaign or candidate they wish, in the Kelowna Lake Country riding or others. This decision applies only in the Kelowna Lake Country riding and is not applicable in any other riding, including adjacent ridings like Central Okanagan—Similkameen—Nicola.”
