City Coun. Carrie Powell-Davidson will carry the Liberal standard in the Parksville Qualicum Beach region in the federal election

Parksville city councillor Carrie Powell-Davidson is the Liberal Party of Canada candidate for the new Courtenay-Alberni riding.

The federal election is slated for October of 2015. A Liberal Party official told The NEWS the nomination meeting was held at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre on Thursday. There were no other candidates — Powell-Davidson was acclaimed.

“I am pleased to accept this nomination on behalf of our communities,” Powell-Davison said in the release. “It’s time for us to get a real voice in Ottawa.”

As a writer, educator and two term councillor for the City of Parksville, the Liberal Party said Powell-Davidson brings the knowledge and experience necessary to represent the communities of Courtenay-Alberni.

“She is deeply committed to fostering strong relationships between all levels of government,” said the release. “Carrie knows that we need to work together to move forward on infrastructure investment, expanded resources for mental health, economic growth and most importantly, building a better and more compassionate Canada.”

Born and raised in B.C., Powell-Davidson has lived in the riding with her husband, Micheal, and their two children, for the past 21 years. She will not be seeking re-election to Parksville city council on Nov. 15. The new riding of Courtenay-Alberni includes the communities in and around Parksville Qualicum Beach.

The Conservative Party will have current MP John Duncan carrying their banner in May. The Green Party has nominated Glenn Sollitt and the NDP has nominated Gord Johns.
