Another federal NDP leadership hopeful is headed to Nelson on Monday.

Four-term Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen will be in town as part of a two-day West Kootenay visit and a prolonged tour of BC.

“One of the things I like most about British Columbia is it’s so far from Ottawa,” Cullen said. “It’s a place where new ideas and new politics emerge.”

He’ll be at the Nelson Trading Company from noon to 2 p.m. for a brown bag lunch session, and then be in the Benwell Lounge of the Hume Hotel for drinks from 7 to 10 p.m.

He’s in Trail and Castlegar the following day.

Cullen, 39, boasts of being the longest serving MP to run for the leadership and the only one of the nine candidates to have defeated a Conservative MP.

Fellow contender Brian Topp also visited Nelson this month.
