THUNDER BAY – POLITICS – Christy Radbourne is seeking the Thunder Bay-Rainy River riding nomination. While in the last election Radbourne ran as a Green Party candidate, this time out she is seeking the nomination as a Liberal. Her decision was posted on her Facebook page.
Radbourne wrote: “I am posting tonight to announce that after much deliberation I will be seeking the Liberal Party Nomination in the Thunder Bay-Rainy River riding for the 2019 Federal election.
“There are many reasons for this, but it boils down to the opportunity to serve the community in a broader fashion and support a platform that I believe will help move our community and Canada forward. My positions and beliefs align with the Liberal platform and I also believe that I can bring added voice to issues I am passionate about, including the environment and climate change, sustainable communities, relationships with our Indigenous peoples and nations, improved infrastructure, and the continued protection of our healthcare system. You already know I am passionate about public education and would continue to represent that position even at the Federal level.”
Murray Munro, the riding president for the Thunder Bay-Rainy River riding association reported yesterday that the nomination process has opened.
Shelby Ch’ng, who was elected in the Northwood Ward in the last civic election has also put her name forward for the Liberal nomination.
