Liberal candidate coming back

  • Apr. 29, 2009 12:00 p.m.

Liberal candidate Herb Pond is making another campaign swing over to the islands next week. Mr. Pond, who has already visited Haida Gwaii a couple of times in his quest to become the next North Coast MLA, will be in Sandspit on Monday (May 4) and Queen Charlotte on Tuesday (May 5). Scheduler Greg Slocombe said the candidate will be meeting with voters Monday evening between 6 and 8:30 pm at the Inn at Sandspit, and having breakfast with voters Tuesday morning from 7 until 8:30 am at the Oceanview Restaurant in Charlotte. “It’s a chance for people to drop in and have coffee with Herb,” Mr. Slocombe said. Mr. Pond will also spend time knocking on doors in Charlotte and Skidegate before driving up to Masset Tuesday to catch the plane back to Rupert. To set up a meeting with Mr. Pond, call Mr. Slocombe at 250-622-4237. The provincial election is May 12. There are three candidates in the North Coast riding: Mr. Pond, the NDP’s Gary Coons (also the incumbent MLA) and the Green Party’s Lisa Girbav.
