HQPrinceGeorge.com is reporting that former Prince George Mayor Colin Kinsley will seek the Conservative nomination in Prince George-Peace River.

The formal announcement is expected Thursday afternoon at a hotel in Prince George.

With Kinsley, the number of people running for the nomination has grown to six. The other candidates include Fort St. John City Councillors Dan Davies and Don Irwin, Teacher Bob Zimmer, Tumbler Ridge Councillor Jerrilyn Schembri and Prince George City Councillor Cameron Stoltz.

At this time the riding association has not announced when they will choose their next candidate. Current Conservative M.P. Jay Hill will step down on Oct. 25.
