Long time Prince George city councillor Garth Frizzell is entering federal politics.
He announced Friday that he is the Liberal candidate in the Cariboo-Prince George riding. He said issues he will focusing on are the big issues facing most of the country … climate change, reconciliation, and moving past the pandemic economy.
“Environment and climate change, reconciliation,” he said. “We’ve got to deal with pandemic recovery. As we go into the pandemic recovery, it’s important to everybody that Cariboo-Prince George is at the table.”
Frizzell has served on Prince George city council since 2008 and just completed a term as president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. He teaches technology, business and economics courses at the College of New Caledonia. He is also a member of the Prince George Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Governors, having served as that organization’s president.
So far, incumbent Conservative Todd Doherty and New Democrat Audrey McKinnon are also running in Cariboo-Prince George riding.
