Libertarian candidate Christina Yahn has withdrawn from the race for member of Parliament for the Kootenay-Columbia federal riding.

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

Yahn was one of more than 80 Libertarian Party candidates across the country.

“The mission of the Libertarian Party of Canada is to reduce the responsibilities and expense of government,” says www.libertarian.ca. “This, so that we may each manage our lives to mutually fulfill our needs by the free and voluntary exchange of our efforts and property for the value that best realizes our happiness.”

The Nelson resident had participated in the Kootenay-Columbia Black Press Q&A to explain her party’s viewpoints on regional issues (Parts 1, 2 and 3).

“I appreciate being included in the Q&A series thus far to offer the perspective of liberty,” she said.
