Kootenay West candidates spread out on final day of campaign

Voters in B.C. head to the polls tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters in B.C. go to the polls tomorrow (May 14).

The four Kootenay West candidates are spread out across the riding on the final day of the election campaign.

– The NDP’s Katrine Conroy is in the Slocan Valley visiting Nakusp, Burton and Fauquier supporters.

– BC Liberal candidate, Jim Postnikoff, is splitting his time between Castlegar and Trail according to his spokesperson Jesse (his son).

– Independent Joseph Hughes is also in Castlegar and is making his way to Trail, Fruitvale and Montrose as the campaign draws to a close.

– Telephone and email messages to Glen Byle, who is also running as an independent, have not been returned as yet.

Only one campaign team confirmed a specific location where the candidate will be on election day: Katrine Conroy will be at the Portuguese Social Centre for a reception as results come in.

“We’re getting ready for E-Day tomorrow,” Conroy said by telephone from Nakusp. “We’re going to supporters houses who are helping us with getting out the vote. Campaigning is always fun: it has it’s moments with 28 days and five all-candidates forums, but I’m looking forward to tomorrow night and seeing where things go after that.”

Joseph Hughes, reached by telephone Monday, said he may make his way back to Nakusp on election day and was looking forward to celebrating with his family regardless of the outcome.

“We may go camping shortly after the results and get re-grounded,” said Hughes. “It’s been an incredible adventure for the family and we’ve met some great people. It’s been inspirational and a lot of work.”

Jim Postnikoff’s election day itinerary is tentative at this point.
