BC Conservatives look for candidates in Chilliwack-Hope riding

The BC Conservatives have one nominee, and they're looking for more.

The BC Conservatives are looking for more election candidate nominations in the Chilliwack-Hope riding.

“At present, the constituency association’s candidate search committee has received one application and several expressions of interest from local members of the business and arts communities,” the association said in a Monday news release.

Rosedale resident Michael Henshall has submitted his nomination package, the association said, “and is encouraging others to join him in signing up new members.”

“He firmly believes that jobs and young people are leaving B.C. for greener pastures and is determined to reverse the trend,” the association said in the news release.

Candidate nomination packages will be accepted until Jan. 31, and voting will take place at a Feb. 9 nomination meeting to elect a candidate in the Chilliwack-Hope riding.

Nomination forms are available at chwk.hope.BCCP@gmail.com
