BOWMANVILLE, ONTARIO – The Green Party of Canada is pleased to announce Virginia Ervin as the nominated candidate for Durham.
“Virginia was our candidate in 2004 and 2006 and will do an excellent job communicating the platform of the Green Party to a riding that is seeking someone to represent their values,” said Green Party of Canada Leader and MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands Elizabeth May.
Ervin has lived in Hampton for most of her life. As the Green Candidate for Durham in 2004 and 2006 Federal Election, she attained over 4% of the popular vote in both elections.
“This riding is my home. I would be honoured to represent these constituents, my neighbours, with a strong and persistent voice in Ottawa,” said Ervin. “Green Party of Canada Leader, Elizabeth May, the ‘country’s hardest-working politician’ is the real Opposition to Stephen Harper. Just imagine the positive impact if we sent other Green MPs to join her in the House of Commons.”
