Non-affiliate candidate throws hat in Cariboo-Prince George ring

A seventh candidate, who says he is apolitical, has put his name forward for the Cariboo Prince George riding.

A seventh candidate, who says he is apolitical, has put his name forward for the Cariboo Prince George riding.

“I am running as a non-affiliate,” said 67-year-old Gordon Campbell who moved to Williams Lake in August from Vernon to follow his son. “I want to offer people the opportunity to vote no or none of the above.”

This isn’t the first time Campbell has run for office, offering the same.

It is something he has being doing both federally and provincially since 1988.

Campbell said he is the candidate to vote for if people do not believe in politics or in voting before a full audit is done of the government.

He’s also believes in total ballot reform, he said.

“You should be able to put a yes or a no beside every single name.”

Citizens, he added, should be able to say no to what they do not want.

Whether he is successful or not, after the election Campbell plans to circulate a petition across Canada to determine how many people agree with his stance.

“I challenge anybody to try and tell me that I don’t have the right to say no. Every teenager knows you have the right to say no or none of the above.”

As long as that right does not exist then government does not have to answer to the people, he added.
