NDP — Kootenay – Columbia

Between August 9 and August 19 he’ll be visiting 14 communities in the riding during what he is called his Summer Democratic Reform tour. He’ll be in Revelstoke on August 18 between 2 and 3 pm at Conversations coffee house.

“In the last two federal elections, parties that only received 39% of the vote formed a majority government with 100% of the power — this is not a fair system,” Stetski said in a statement. “The current government has promised to make changes, but those changes need to reflect the desires of Canadians across the country, not just the interests of the party in power.  It is important for me to hear from the people of Kootenay-Columbia on this important issue, so I can take your views back to Ottawa.”

Stetski will be holding meetings in Fernie, Sparwood, Kimberley, Cranbrook, Creston, Salmo, Ymir, Nelson, Kaslo, Meadow Creek, Revelstoke, Golden, Invermere and Spillicheen. Specific dates, times and locations can be found below, as well as on Stetski’s website and Facebook page.
