B.C. Green leadership candidate Sonia Furstenau needs to put B.C. NDP government on the hot seat

Yesterday (January 30), Cowichan Valley MLA Sonia Furstenau bagged a big endorsement in her campaign to become the next leader of the B.C. Greens.

Victoria mayor Lisa Helps said that she couldn’t think of a better person to lead the party.

“Sonia is thoughtful, intentional, collaborative and most importantly, she really listens and can bring people together,” Helps said in a statement.

Furstenau was elected in 2017 in a formerly safe NDP riding after battling a provincial decision to allow a toxic soil dump above Shawnigan Lake’s watershed.
