Something new is happening in the Mission-area political scene – the Libertarians are coming.

Local resident and former Pastor Steve Forbes, now a historian/writer, is organizing a meeting to begin preparing for the upcoming federal election on October 19 of this year.

On June 11 at 7 pm there will be a meeting in the Mission Library to discuss ways to help the people of this area become “freer, less bound by regulations, more free to make their own choices, less heavily taxed.”

Forbes hopes to begin a “movement towards freedom”,  on that evening.

A candidate to run in the riding of Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon, on behalf of the Libertarians, will be chosen soon thereafter.
