“The NDP candidate, Randall Garrison, is the first municipal councilor in B.C. to pass a local resolution supporting a tanker ban, so there’s a strong local champion in that riding,” said Mr. Swanson. “And that’s where we’re based, so we’ve got a lot of supporters in that riding as well.”
“We picked ridings where we can either indirectly support a strong champion for an oil tanker ban, or ones where we can contribute to a defeat of a Conservative incumbent or candidate who does not support an oil tanker ban,” he said.
