White Rock tenor announces bid for Conservative nomination

Well-known for singing O Canada, Mark Donnelly announces quest for South Surrey-White Rock seat

A White Rock tenor known for his renditions of O Canada at Canucks games and sundry other events is getting political.

Mark Donnelly announced via Facebook Wednesday that he is seeking the Conservative nomination for the South Surrey-White Rock riding for the 2019 federal election.

“I believe our federal government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is running Canada off a cliff,” he elaborates on his ‘Nominate Mark Donnelly’ webpage.

According to his post, an event is planned for 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday at Ethical Addiction Apparel (1558 128 St.) – “I might even sing a song or two.”

Others who have announced nomination bids so far include Kerry-Lynne Findlay – who ran in December’s byelection – and former Prince George mayor Shari Green.
