One of the national political leaders is returning to Prince George for a visit.

Elizabeth May, the federal leader for the Green Party of Canada, has planned a public town hall meeting in the city this weekend on a ‘Community Matters’ tour.

The Saanich-Gulf Islands MP’s last visit to the north was in October 2017 during Inspiring Women Among Us (IWAU) week at UNBC talking about international treaties on climate change, an area of which she has long advocated for.

According to the event’s description, May is hoping to hear comments and concerns from local residents, adding topics of democracy, humanity, and nature will be discussed.

The town hall is scheduled for Saturday (Mar. 2), 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lheidli T'enneh's Uda Dune Baiyoh, House of Ancestors on Vancouver Street.

Earlier in the day, she will be attending UNBC to interact with students in a private meet-and-greet.

Prince George is one of two B.C. cities May is visiting next month.
