Cloverdale-Langley City Liberal candidate John Aldag has snagged an unusual statement of support – one from the former leader of the federal Green Party.
The support from Elizabeth May, MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands, was announced in a Tweet by Aldag on Wednesday.
There is no Green Party candidate running in the Cloverdale-Langley City riding this election.
“John’s 32-year record with Parks Canada underscores his deep understanding of the imperative for environmental action,” the May endorsement said.
Aldag was MP for Cloverdale-Langley City from 2015 to 2019, when he was defeated by Conservative Tamara Jansen.
May’s campaign team said the statement was not an official endorsement of Aldag’s candidacy.
This election, Cloverdale – Langley City will not have a Green candidate.
I'm delighted to have been recognized for my commitment to the environment by my friend and former colleague from across the aisle, @ElizabethMay.#Cloverdale #SurreyBC #LangleyBC #elxn44 pic.twitter.com/Q8jWdIMWlf
