After a federal candidacy run in 2019 for the Green party of Canada, Mackenzie Kerr is now seeking to try her hand provincially.
Kerr has announced she has been selected as the BC Green Party candidate in the Prince George-Valemount riding. As of publication (Sept. 26), she will be running against incumbent Shirley Bond of the BC Liberal Parrty and Sean Robson of the BC Libertarian Party
EXCITED TO SAY I AM OFFICIALLY THE CANDIDATE! Now I just need a few more signatures to get on the ballot! Dm with your # if you’re in my riding and can “sign” over the phone! I’m so excited to be running for the @BCGreens 🥰🌏🌲🌻 https://t.co/doUUzvXsf8— Mackenzie Kerr (@MackenzieKerr97) September 26, 2020
During last year's federal election, Kerr ran against the Conservative Party of Canada candidate Todd Doherty, Liberal Party of Canada's Tracy Calogheros, NDP's Heather Sapergia, People's Party of Canada's Jing Lan Yang and Independent Michael Orr in the Cariboo-Prince George riding.
Doherty would retain his seat while Kerr finished behind Calogheros, Sapergia and Doherty for fourth place with 4,998 votes which equated to 9.1 per cent of the vote.
More to come.
