People’s Party of Canada has big goals for Kelowna

The party is establishing plans for the upcoming election

The People’s Party of Canada has a new and ambitious electoral district association in the Kelowna-Lake Country riding.

The enthusiasm was evident as a number of the executive positions were contested. They have established plans to overtake both the Conservative and Liberal local EDA’s in membership and volunteers, supported by a party executive that’s gaining momentum on the national stage.

The inaugural general meeting for the Kelowna-Lake Country EDA was hosted just over two- weeks ago, but in that time their membership has swelled to close to two-hundred people. The party believes it appeals to a much broader voter base than either the Conservative or Liberal parties.

They are in the process of establishing bylaws and appointing a nomination committee with the goal of fielding a candidate in the 2019 Federal election.
