Green Party Leader Elizabeth May will make three stops in Brandon on Friday.

The day long tour is part of the Green Party’s Community Matters Tour that is working its way across the country.

David Neufeld of Boissevain is a past Green Party Candidate in Brandon-Souris and is helping to promote May’s visit to Western Manitoba. Our leader is trying to emphasize what we do in our local communities about improving our lives and giving feedback to leaders and so forth is probably what is most important.”

Elizabeth May starts Friday’s events with a fund raising luncheon at Lady of The Lake. Up next a stop at Brandon University and the day will end with a town hall at the East End Community Centre Friday night.

“We are in a time when we are getting pretty cynical about political leaders and she is consistently voted as the most ethical and effective leader in Ottawa.”

As for the upcoming federal election this fall Neufeld says the Green Party’s Brandon-Souris Association is still trying to find a candidate.
