With only eight hours before the deadline, Kyle McCormack became a candidate for the Libertarian Party in the May 9 provincial election.
The Salmon Arm resident joins the Liberal’s Greg Kyllo, the NDP’s Sylvia Lindgren and the Green Party’s Kevin Babcock to make it a four-way race.
“I decided to run because I when I looked at the ballot, I was not happy with the options. I think many of my friends and family felt the same,” says McCormack.
“I liked the Libertarian Party because it is about more individual freedom… I think that government is an incompetent manager of the economy.”
McCormack has not attended any of the all-candidates forums so far, but says he plans to begin attending these forums beginning with the one in Salmon Arm on Monday, April 24.
