Rally Sunday at K’omoks Band Hall

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair will be making a stop at a rally in Courtenay as part of his Island Express Tour on Sunday.

He will be at the K’omoks First Nation Band Hall, 3300 Comox Road, at 2 p.m.

“This election is about change,” said Gord Johns the NDP candidate for Courtenay Alberni. “Conservative and Liberal governments in Ottawa have neglected British Columbians for far too long. Islanders know it’s time for Stephen Harper to go. It’s going to be a close race on the Island but we have the momentum to defeat the Conservatives.

“In B.C., a vote for the NDP will defeat Stephen Harper.”

This will be Mulcair’s second visit to Courtenay-Alberni in the 2015 election. All are invited to attend.
