Kris McNichol has announced his candidacy for the Conservative Party of Canada nomination in the riding of Courtenay-Alberni.

According to a release, "with a strong background in business, sport, and community involvement, McNichol hopes to bring his passion and expertise to represent the interests of the people in Courtenay-Alberni."

McNichol is a local business owner who has had multiple companies in the Parksville Qualicum area during the last 23 years, said the release. He is a father and grandfather who has lived in the Parksville and Nanoose Bay area for more than 30 years. He has promoted women’s sports by coaching The Rage softball team and serving as president of the Oceanside Minor Softball Association. He has also supported the community as the past president of the Sproat Lake Water Sports Association and has volunteered as a firefighter.

As a lifelong conservative, McNichol said he takes pride in creating jobs and employing local people with a common-sense approach and understands the importance of an effective government working on real problems. According to the release, he is running to be the next Member of Parliament because he is "concerned about the growing problems caused by the Trudeau Liberals and the NDP through their coalition, and the impacts this has on our local community and all Canadians."

The date for the Conservative Party's nomination race in the Courtenay-Alberni riding has not yet been set.
