Popham to speak at Valley’s NDP fall dinner

  • Oct. 13, 2017 9:30 a.m.

Lana Popham will be the guest speaker at the Courtenay-Comox NDP’s annual fall dinner on Oct. 21.

“I am really excited about having Lana to our fall dinner,” said MLA Ronna-Rae Leonard. “She has been a passionate advocate for B.C. agriculture for many years, and it’s perfect to have her in the Comox Valley at harvest time.”

Popham has been the MLA for Saanich South since 2009. She entered politics to promote sustainable agriculture and strengthen the provincial response to climate change.

The fall dinner takes place at the Florence Filberg Hall. Doors open at 5 p.m., and dinner starts at 6 p.m. The evening will include dinner by Tria Fine Catering, followed by a dessert auction.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the local NDP. Tickets are $100, and come with a political tax receipt.

Tickets are available at bcndp.ca/events , or at Laughing Oyster Books, 286 Fifth Street in Courtenay. FMI call the Courtenay-Comox NDP at (250) 334-3434.
