The NDP has named its candidate ahead of the Oct. 21 federal election: lawyer Judith Wilson.

According to a press release, Wilson is a longtime New Democrat and a current resident of the Langdale area who practices family law.

She ran for the NDP in the 2006 federal election, taking 20 per cent of the vote in a third-place bid.

Wilson was unopposed and ultimately acclaimed as the party's candidate.

Her interest in politics extends back to the early '80s, when she took a leadership role in fighting fish farms on the Sechelt Inlet.

She has also served as a school trustee for School District 46.

"I believe that government's job is to make life better for all citizens, and that every election is an opportunity to move forward on that goal," Wilson said in the release.

"Today I am proud to be a member of an NDP with an environmental policy that is 'greener than the greens' and a plan to get Canadians 'head to toe' medical coverage."

Wilson joins the Liberals' Patrick Weiler, the Conservative Party's Gabrielle Loren, the Green Party's Dana Taylor and the People's Party's Robert (Doug) Bebb on the ballot for Sea to Sky voters in 2019.
