Nominee: Keli Westgate    

Nominator: Chris George

City: Vernon, B.C.

Recently our local federal Green party lost its candidate. Keli felt compelled to join the party and put her name forward to run in order to ensure that there was a Green option on the ballot. As the person who stepped forward the next day to run against her, I really admire her willingness to put herself out to provide important democratic choices to the people of our area.
