Join Elizabeth May for the North Vancouver campaign launch of Green candidate George Orr

SIDNEY, B.C. -- Green Party Leader, Elizabeth May (MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands) invites you to join her and other B.C. Greens this Sunday, to celebrate the exciting campaign launch and fundraiser for George Orr, Green Party of Canada Candidate for North Vancouver.

“I’m thrilled that George Orr has accepted the nomination to run for the Green Party of Canada in the 2019 election,” said Ms. May. “It was a hotly contested nomination and I’d like to thank the other candidates, Michael Doherty and Paul Hundel for their efforts and commitment to the party. Across the country people are coming out to support the Greens. I saw this first hand on the Community Matters Tour. Strong candidates like George will build on that momentum right up to election day.”

A veteran broadcast journalist, George Orr is committed to running an energetic campaign that connects him with people in the community. “As a journalist I looked at both sides of every issue and tried to be fair, balanced and objective,” said Mr. Orr. “Eventually, I realised that reporting on issues wasn’t enough, I wanted the opportunity to do more. The Green Party’s values and policies were a natural fit for me.”

When: March 31, 1.30pm - 3.30pm
Where: The PROFILE Coworking Business Club, 120 Lonsdale Avenue, Suite 100, North Vancouver
