THUNDER BAY — The Green Party of Canada has chosen Amanda Moddejonge to represent it in the Oct. 21 federal election in Thunder Bay-Rainy River.
Moddejonge ran for the Greens in Thunder Bay-Superior North in the 2018 Ontario election, when she finished fourth.
She says the Greens have a "balanced and thoughtful platform" and a "dynamic" leader in Elizabeth May.
In a statement, Moddejonge said national polls show the Greens are the strongest alternative for voters who are displeased with the Conservatives and Liberals.
She is a former member of the Canadian military.
Former MP Bruce Hyer, the Green candidate in Thunder Bay-Superior North, said he's known Moddejonge since the 2015 federal election when she worked as a volunteer on his campaign team.
Hyer said he hopes she joins him and May in Parliament "to responsibly hold the balance of power in the likely Liberal minority government."
