Green Party opens shop on Goldstream Ave.

Both candidates for West Shore ridings will share space

There’s a new neighbour on Goldstream Avenue and they’re going green. If you haven’t already noticed a big green sign perched atop the roofs of the Langford Centre, then look up the next time you are going by, it’s hard to miss.

The Green Party of Canada, now located at 200-754 Goldstream Ave., invites the public to an open house this Sunday (July 5) from 3 to 5 p.m., to meet area candidates and celebrate their new digs.

“It’s the first time the Greens have had an office on the West Shore, so that’s super exciting,” said Judith Cullington, campaign manager for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke candidate Frances Litman. “Come one, come all, check out our space, come meet the candidates.”

Litman’s campaign will share the office space with fellow Green Party candidate Fran Hunt-Jinnouchi, who is running in the Cowichan-Malahat-Langford riding through to the federal election, which is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 19.
