Hondo Arendt

Hondo Arendt from Prince Rupert, a Northwest Community College instructor, is the Green party candidate for the North Coast riding.

  • Mar. 22, 2017 7:00 a.m.

Northwest Community College professor Hondo Arendt from Prince Rupert has put his name forward as the Green party candidate for the North Coast riding.

Earlier information from the Green party that Arendt was running in the Skeena riding was incorrect, said the party in a release late today.

“It turns out we had a clerical error in the office and Hondo is in fact running in North Coast, not Skeena, said the Green party release.

Arendt has been a Green Party candidate in the past, both in federal and provincial elections and teaches primarily political science and history.

“The B.C. Greens are the only party that looks at the big picture considering the economic, environmental and social impacts of all the decisions we make as a society,” said Arendt. “I would like to be able to represent our region as a balanced Green voice in the future governance of our province.”

Arendt has lived in the northwest for most of his life, in Houston, Terrace, Kincolith and now Prince Rupert where he has taught for the last 25 years.

Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Arendt’s nomination.

“I am thrilled to welcome Hondo to our incredible slate of B.C. Green candidates,” said Weaver. “Hondo is an outstanding educator, political scientist and long-time advocate for made-in-B.C. Green ideas. He has deep roots in the Northwest and is well-positioned to be the voice for the people of Skeena in the legislature in Victoria.”

Arendt ran in the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding in the 2008 federal election and provincially in the North Coast riding in 2013 and in 2005.
