Lois Boone has officially been declared the NDP candidate for the Prince George-Peace River riding.
At Saturday’s nomination meeting in Prince George, Boone was formally nominated as the party’s federal candidate. She had been an uncontested candidate but Boone says she’s looking forward to her campaign and being a strong voice for the north.
Currently, she is a trustee for School Board 57 in Prince George.
She says two of her main campaign points focus on calling on the federal government to remove the federal tax from home heating fuel for British Columbians and to once again implement its home retrofit program. She says reinstating the program will allow residents the opportunity to help make their homes more energy efficient.
Furthermore, Boone says her party is still requesting that the Prime Minister call a by-election for the riding.
