3 candidates officially approved to run for B.C. Green leadership
VICTORIA -- Three candidates have been officially approved to run for leadership of the British Columbia Green Party, as they look to replace former leader Andrew Weaver.
Sonia Furstenau already has a seat in the B.C. legislature for the Greens, representing the riding of Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.
Cam Brewer is an environmental lawyer in Vancouver, while Kim Darwin is a mortgage broker from Sechelt.
The party had to suspend its leadership race in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic and resumed the contest earlier this month.
The party says in a statement that the leadership event will feature a live, online debate on Sept. 1.
Voting will take place online or by phone, using a ranked ballot system, from Sept. 5 to Sept. 13.
