BRIEF: Liberal candidate Don Johnston visiting Revelstoke

Don Johnston, the Liberal candidate for Kootenay-Columbia, will be visiting Revelstoke June 3-4.

Don Johnston, the Liberal candidate for Kootenay-Columbia, will be visiting Revelstoke this week.

He will be touring the city this Wednesday and Thursday, June 3–4, with an itinerary that includes stops at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre to view the high school art show and community garden, and a meeting with Mayor Mark McKee.

He will be holding meet-and-greet that is open to the public at Zala’s on June 3 at 7:15 p.m.

Johnston announced his candidacy last month. He joins NDP candidate Wayne Stetski and Green Party candidate Bill Green in the race to unseat Conservative MP David Wilks.

He has his work cut out for him if he wants to get elected — Liberal candidate Betty Aitchison only got 3.5 per cent of the vote in the 2011 Federal election.
