Greens announce candidate

UPDATE: 12:45 p.m.

Kamloops' Dan Hines announced Saturday he will be running in the Kamloops-South Thompson riding for the BC Green Party. 

Hines, a third generation Kamsloopsian, is an Anglican priest, and has been involved in a number of local non-profit boards. 

He initially ran for office in Kamloops North Thompson as a BC Green Candidate in the 2017 BC Election.

Dan is an international leadership consultant and workshop facilitator. He spent the last two years consulting in Beijing, China and has traveled extensively throughout North America. 

“The pandemic has made us all aware of how interdependent we are. We need each other. I am grateful for the strong support of so many people who encouraged me to run in this snap BC election. We are all learning how to best respond to this uncertain time and now this quick rollercoaster ride over these next four weeks," says Hines.

"We need a new collaborative approach to politics and governance. We need to look past the next election cycle and consider the future: our economic recovery and community well-being. I am grateful to share more in the weeks ahead about the vision of the BC Greens and the new leader Sonia Furstenau."

He will be running against incumbent BC Liberal candidate Todd Stone.
