Islanders will get a chance to meet new MP Nathan Cullen at a potluck picnic Monday evening (Aug. 9) at the Tlell fairgrounds.
“It’s very informal,” said picnic organizer Kay Waring of Port Clements. “He’d like to meet as many people as he can.”
Mr. Cullen, a Smithers resident and member of the NDP, was elected June 28.
He’s coming to the islands on the Sunday ferry, along with NDP leader Jack Layton and his wife, Olivia Chow. Mr. Layton and Ms Chow are then heading south for a kayaking vacation in Gwaii Haanas.
Mr. Cullen will spend Monday on the islands, then head back to the mainland on Tuesday.
Ms Waring said the potluck starts at about 5:30 pm. Everyone is welcome, she stressed, not just members of the NDP.
