Residents looking to show support for the BC NDP’s Norm Macdonald will have a new place to call home on April 16.

“Campaigning doesn’t have to be boring,” said Macdonald, who will be in town to celebrate the grand opening of his party’s provincial election office on the evening of Tuesday April 16.

He noted food and refreshments will be served, along with a plate of food-for-thought.

The two-term MLA will be outlining his platform, discussing his party’s plans for government and how both of those align with issues that are important to people in Golden.

“There is a real appetite for a change in government throughout the province,” Macdonald said. “But not just change, it’s about change for the better.”

The campaign office, which will be staffed by a team of volunteers, is located at 513 – 9th Ave. N., right across from the CIBC.

The kickoff event is scheduled to start at 4 p.m and will feature music from Sarah Osadetz and Leo Downey.
