Samantha Troy is the Green candidate for South Okanagan – West Kootenay, announced the Green Party of Canada last week.

“It is my pleasure to have Sam join us as a Green Party candidate,” said Carrie McLaren, Green Party of Canada BC organizer.

“As a working mom, passionate and resourceful, she offers an excellent choice for voters in South Okanagan – West Kootenay on Oct. 19.”

Samantha (Sam) Troy lives in Rossland, B.C. working at Red Mountain Ski Resort in outdoor operations and dispatch. She currently serves as both shop steward and health and safety chair.

After working 20 years in forestry she joined the Green Party because she sees how climate change is directly impacting the local environment and economy.

“Resource sector and tourism jobs in this riding depend directly on the environment,” Troy concluded. “Pine beetle, drought, rain instead of powder days and range land lost to fire all hurt my riding. We need a new federal government that understands that the economy and environmental protection are both related and important.”
