September 26, 2016 11:14 A.M.

Another provincial election candidate will be confirmed Thursday when the Green Party introduces its Kamloops-North Thompson candidate at Reubin’s Diner.

The announcement takes place at 10 a.m. at the dinner, 204 Tranquille Rd.

Dan Hines, an Anglican pastor and facilitator, is expected to represent the party in Kamloops-North. Though he lives in Kamloops-South, Hines’ roots are in the North Thompson.

Two weeks ago, Donovan Cavers, a Kamloops city councillor, declared his intention to seek the Green nomination in Kamloops-South. His candidacy has yet to be confirmed by the party.

With Thursday’s announcement, the local slate of candidates is coming into sharper focus for next spring’s provincial election. In Kamloops-North, Steven Puhallo, NSBIA manager, businessman Michael Grenier and Mayor Peter Milobar are vying for the Liberal ticket. HEU regional vice-president and health-care activist Barb Nederpel is running for the NDP. In Kamloops-South, former city councillor Nancy Bepple is challenging Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone.
