The B.C. Liberals have announced local entrepreneur Cathy Noel as the party’s candidate for Juan de Fuca-Langford.

“I’m ready to take my experiences as a business owner, entrepreneur, and mother and use them to make a real difference in our community,” said Noel in a written release.

“Our riding is really growing – and we need a strong champion for this growth in the legislature who understands that the best way to look after the people we love is with a strong economy that creates good jobs on the Island and across B.C.”

Noel owns and operates a small business that has organized local charity events for dozens of not-for-profits across the Island. She is also the race director for two of the largest races on the Island: the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon and the Victoria Goddess Run, and is past race director of the Times Colonist 10K, and past president of the Vancouver Island Runners Association.

Over and above race directing, Noel has completed in Ironman Canada, more than 10 marathons, and many half marathons.

Noel joins a team of 66 B.C. Liberal candidates already nominated provincewide.

In the last election, the B.C. NDP’s John Horgan won the riding by 5,218 votes.

The B.C. Green Party expects to nominate a candidate in January.

The general provincial election is set for May 9, 2017.
