NDP in Comox Valley hit streets, visit islands

The campaign to elect Kassandra Dycke as the new NDP MLA for Comox Valley in the May 14 provincial election got off to a swift start.

The campaign to elect Kassandra Dycke as the new NDP MLA for Comox Valley in the May 14 provincial election got off to a swift start with enthusiastic volunteers turning out to put up signs on lawns, get leaflets out, and wave at motorists.

“The provincial election hasn’t even been officially launched, and the NDP campaign in Comox Valley is already in full swing,” Dycke said. “It’s certainly clear that people in Comox Valley are supporting the NDP’s message of practical change.”

Dycke’s campaign office at 408 Fifth St. in Courtenay opened April 5, 11 days before the official beginning of the campaign, and since then it has been busy as volunteers have signed up.

“On Sunday we got a great response when we took our campaign to Hornby and Denman islands,” Dycke said.

On Friday, many Dycke supporters stood on the 17th Street Bridge waving signs to passing motorists.
