Samantha Troy

Green Party candidate announced

Samantha Troy of Rossland has joined the race for the Oct.19 election

The Green Party has officially joined the race to represent the South Okanagan-West Kootenay (SOWK) riding.

Samantha Troy, of Rossland, will carry the party colours for the Oct. 19 election.

“It is my pleasure to have Sam join us as a Green Party Candidate,” said Carrie McLaren, Green Party of Canada BC Organizer said in a press release.

“As a working mom, passionate and resourceful, she offers an excellent choice for voters in South Okanagan–West Kootenay.”

Troy, who couldn’t be reached by press time, works at Red Mountain Ski Resort in outdoor operations and dispatch. She currently serves as both shop steward and Health and Safety chair.

The Green Party release stated that after working 20 years in forestry Troy joined the party because she sees how climate change is directly impacting the local environment and economy.

“Resource sector and tourism jobs in this riding depend directly on the environment,” said Troy in the release.

“Pine beetle, drought, rain instead of powder days and range land lost to fire all hurt my riding. We need a new Federal Government that understands that the economy and environmental protection are both related and important.”
