MLA Simons guest speaker for Comox Valley NDP

MLA Nicholas Simons will be guest speaker at the Comox Valley NDP annual general meeting this Sunday.

MLA Nicholas Simons, who will be guest speaker at the Comox Valley NDP annual general meeting this Sunday, says people here and across B.C. are eager to change government for the better.

“Everywhere I go, I can feel the determination. People say that the B.C. Liberals are out of gas, and they see that Adrian Dix is offering practical, positive solutions,” said Simons, the MLA for Powell River-Sunshine Coast.

“Momentum for change is building, and that’s why the Comox Valley NDP and candidate Kassandra Dycke are ready to mount the strongest campaign yet.”

Simons will provide an overview of the provincial political scene at Sunday’s meeting, which starts at 1 p.m. at the Evergreen Seniors Lounge of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Dycke, who will also speak at the meeting, said she is looking forward to Simons’ speech.

“Nicholas is always highly entertaining,” she said. “Even when he’s talking about serious issues like the Liberal’s HST fiasco, he has a way of putting it in perspective. He always leaves you feeling confident that we can change things for the better.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting, but only NDP members have a vote. In addition to speeches by Simons and Dycke, the agenda includes executive elections and a campaign report.
