Libertarian candidate in Kootenay Columbia drops out

Christina Yahn was one of 85 Libertarian candidates across the country.

Christina Yahn, the candidate for the Libertarian party in the Kootenay Columbia riding, has withdrawn from  the federal election.

“Due to personal reasons,” she wrote in an email to the media, “I regret to announce my resignation as a candidate for the 2015 election. I wish the best to fellow candidates and I look forward to future political endeavours when I am able to participate.”

Yahn, who lives in Nelson,  was one of  the Libertarian Party’s 85 candidates across the country. Its policies promote private property rights, the free market, individual liberty, and the withdrawal of government from many spheres of public life.

Yahn did not participate in the two all candidates meetings recently held in Nelson, but until this week did contribute to the Star‘s weekly series of written Q&As with the candidates.
