Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer will be in Kamloops next week.
He will be the fourth national party leader to visit the city in this election year.
Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod and the Conservative riding association will host Scheer at a Tuesday, July, 2, barbecue in Riverside Park.
The public is invited to attend, with a donation to the Lions Club requested. The barbecue is scheduled to be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP online here.
Scheer’s arrival the day after Canada Day follows two appearances in Kamloops earlier this year by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is the Liberal leader, and visits by People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier and Green Leader Elizabeth May.
Only NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and Communist Party of Canada Leader Elizabeth Rowley have yet to visit Kamloops this year.
The federal election will be held on Oct. 21.
In Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, the candidates are:
• Conservative: Incumbent MP Cathy McLeod
• Liberal: Terry Lake
• NDP: Gina Myhill-Jones
• Green: Iain Currie
• People’s Party: Ken Finlayson
• Communist: Peter Kerek
