Virtual town hall a way BC Greens are reaching out to Fraser Nicola voters

Jonah Timms, confirmed candidate for Greens, to hold town hall online Friday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.

In an effort to reach voters during the pandemic, Fraser Nicola candidates are foregoing the traditional door knocking and gathering in crowds for other means.

First-time BC Green Party candidate in Fraser Nicola Jonah Timms is aiming to reach voters online, through a virtual town hall meeting. Taking place on videoconferencing app Zoom, Timms will introduce himself to voters today (Friday, Oct. 9) at 7 p.m.

To join the zoom meetings, organizers say a click of this link is all that’s needed: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84788408686.

Confirmed candidates in the Fraser Nicola district are Aaron Sumexheltza (BC NDP), Dennis Adamson (independent), incumbent Jackie Tegart (BC Liberals), Jonah Timms (BC Greens) and Mike Bhangu (independent). They will be vying for a chance to represent a district that stretches from Manning Park in the south to Clinton in the north.

Hope has seen visits by several of the candidates so far, including a brief campaign stop of Jackie Tegart’s where BC Liberal Party leader Andrew Wilkinson tagged along.
