Sundhu, 62, is a human rights lawyer in Kamloops. He ran for the party in the 2015 federal election, when Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party won its first term via a majority.

The next federal election is not scheduled until 2023. However, Trudeau, whose party currently has a minority government, is expected to seek an early vote.

KTW reached out to the Green Party, Liberal Party and Conservative Party riding associations for comment.

With Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod announcing in February that she will not be seeking a fourth term in Ottawa, the race for the Conservative nomination has begun. Thus far, four people are interested: Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo, Tourism Kamloops CEO Beverley DeSantis, Tobiano founder Mike Grenier and Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer.

There has been no word yet on the status of the nomination process among the Liberal and Green parties.
