B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins is coming to Chilliwack Monday.
Cummins has been touring the province promoting the party, but the upcoming byelection makes the Chilliwack-Hope riding a particular interest.
Details of Cummins’ visit were not immediately known, but after meetings here he is expected to continue on to Hope.
A nomination meeting date has been set for Jan. 17 for party members in the riding to choose a candidate – but no location has been selected.
So far, only conservative columnist and career criminologist John Martin has declared a bid for the nomination in Chilliwack-Hope.
Christine Clarke is expected to be acclaimed the party’s candidate today (Thursday) in the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding where another byelection is being held.
No dates for either byelection have been set.
