The People’s Party of Canada is parachuting a candidate into the Cariboo-Prince George riding for this fall’s federal election. The Cariboo-Prince George PPC Electoral District Association has named Jing Lan Yang (Young) as its candidate for the October election.
Young, as she prefers to be called, will be first introduced to the public June 29 at 10 a.m. with her participation in The Williams Lake Stampede Parade. She will then be available for selfies, questions and comments at a booth in the Street Party.
Young, a former teacher in the Lower Mainland has over 20 years of experience in B.C. and Canadian issues but little on the subtleties involved with the northern experience, according to a press release.
Incumbent Conservative candidate Todd Doherty will be seeking a second term in the riding. Liberal, NDP, and Green candidates are expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
The Peoples Party of Canada was formed by Maxime Bernier on September 14, 2018 and recognized by Elections Canada on January 18, 2019. The party is working to field candidates in all of Canada’s 338 ridings this fall.
