The meet and greet will take place at the Parkgate Community Centre at 5:30 pm on Jan. 22. This is a campaign launch for Lynne Quarmby who will be running as the Green candidate in the newly-formed riding, North Burnaby-Seymour. Lynne is an SFU professor of cell biology who was very active in the protests on Burnaby Mountain. She was one of the first people who got arrested for breaching the Kinder Morgan injunction. This is a great opportunity to meet Lynne, who’s bringing her dynamic energy to what the media are calling a “riding to watch” in the upcoming election.
Elizabeth May will be signing copies of her new book, Who We Are. The event is free and refreshments will be served. Parkgate is located at 3625 Banff Court, North Vancouver and the room is the Mary Hunter Hall.
Lynne and Elizabeth will be leaving at 6:30 pm to go to a similar event in the Burnaby part of the riding. Afterwards, the North Vancouver riding association, which is hosting, will carry on with an informal get-together. Burnaby event details: 7:30 – 8:30 pm, Jan. 22, Rosser Elementary School Gym, 4375 Pandora Street, Burnaby.
