Sollitt hoping to make ‘waves’ in B.C. election

On the final weekend before the May 9 provincial election, Parksville-Qualicum candidates were busy with public appearances, door-knocking and other events in a final push for votes.

B.C. Green Party candidate Glenn Sollitt made a stop at the Fire and Ice Street Festival in Qualicum Beach and then went on to host a town hall meeting Sunday evening in North Nanaimo. He also welcomed a visit by party leader Andrew Weaver and engaged with sign-wielding supporters in a “car wave” in Nanaimo before gathering with more supporters for another wave at the roundabout in Qualicum Beach Monday evening

Sollitt and his supporters will be working at his campaign office in Parksville, at 193 Memorial Ave., until polls close Tuesday at 8 p.m. Afterward, they will remain at the office to monitor election results.
