Libertarian candidate Christina Yahn dropped out of the running for the Oct. 19 federal election.

Christina Yahn, the candidate for the Libertarian Party, dropped out of the Federal election campaign on Monday.

In an e-mail to local media, she wrote: “Due to personal reasons, I regret to announce my resignation as a candidate for the 2015 election. I wish the best to fellow candidates and I look forward to future political endeavours when I am able to participate. I appreciate being included in the Q&A series thus far to offer the perspective of liberty.”

Yahn, who lives in Nelson, was one of the Libertarian Party’s 85 candidates across the country. Its policies promote private property rights, the free market, individual liberty, and the withdrawal of government from many spheres of public life.

Yahn did not take part in a series of election debates last week, including the one in Revelstoke.
