Green Party of Canada Leader Elizabeth May is returning to the riding that includes Parksville Qualicum Beach later this month for a few events.
She’ll be touring with Glenn Sollitt, the Green Party’s candidate in Courtenay-Alberni.
They’ll start their tour at Darwin’s Café in Tofino on Friday, May 22 from 12:30-2:30 p.m.
From there, they’ll travel over to the east coast of Vancouver Island, to Vancouver Island University’s Marine Field Station in Deep Bay.
The public is invited to join May, Sollitt and Field Station Manager Brian Kingzett for a walk-about of the research facility starting at 5:15 p.m. Following that, there will be an opportunity for free appies and a cash wine bar before May speaks to the crowd at 6:15 p.m.
The next morning, Saturday, May 23, starting at 8 a.m., the public is invited to join May and Sollitt for a free continental breakfast and beverages at the Smoke ‘N Water Restaurant in the Pacific Shores Resort in Nanoose Bay.
May was in the news this week after her awkward speech Saturday night at the annual parliamentary dinner in Ottawa. In part of the speech, May suggested convicted (in the U.S.) terrorist Omar Khadr has “more class than the whole f—ing cabinet.”
