An enthusiastic crowd packed into the official opening of Kassandra Dycke’s NDP campaign office at 408 Fifth St. in Courtenay on Friday evening.

“I am overwhelmed by the commitment and dedication of hundreds of volunteers who are eager to get involved in this election campaign,” Dycke after the opening. “People are really geared up to bring positive change to B.C.”

Dycke noted that hundreds of volunteers have already signed up to distribute leaflets, make phone calls and put up signs.

“I am really pleased with the number of new people who are getting involved,” she said. “What’s especially exciting is our energetic crew of youth volunteers, who are reaching out to young people about the importance of voting.”

She said her campaign team has already knocked on more than 5,000 doors in the Comox Valley.

“We’re finding a great deal of support for the practical solutions we’re offering to British Columbians — such as increased access to education and skills training,” she said.
