People’s Party of Canada Nominates Their First Candidates For Two By-Elections

Laura Lynn Tyler Thompson and Jennifer M. Clarke will be representing the new People’s Party in upcoming B.C. by-elections.

The fledgling People’s Party of Canada has nominated their first ever official candidates to represent the party in two upcoming B.C. by-elections.

The announcement of the nominations was made on Twitter:

“The @peoplespca is very proud to announce the nomination of its first ever candidates in the two upcoming BC by-elections.

@LauraLynnTT will represent the PPC in Burnaby South, while @JenniferMClarke will defend our colours in Nanaimo-Ladysmith.

Congratulations to both!!”

The candidates shared their thoughts on Twitter:

“It is a great honor to represent The People’s Party of Canada as one of their first candidates in our nation. I will represent Burnaby South in what will be a fascinating season in Canadian politics. Maxime is bringing a new kind of leadership to our country…just in time!”

“Thank you all, so much for your great support!”

Here’s what People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier tweeted:

“Go @JenniferMClarke and @LauraLynnTT!

So proud to have two fantastic candidates to represent our party in BC for our first ever electoral fight!

This is a historic moment.”

The by-elections will be the first test of the People’s Party ability to be more than a protest party, and will show whether they can move towards challenging for power and relevance.
