George Canyon, country music superstar, announced this morning on Okotoks, Alberta, radio station, The Eagle 100.9 that he will be running for the Conservative nomination in the re-created Bow River federal electoral boundary. The riding includes Claresholm, Brooks and Fort Macleod.
In a release Mr. Canyon states “The people in this riding are resilient and hard working. I was blown away by how well we all pulled together as a team while under the terrible stress of the flood crisis last year, the recovery of which is still ongoing,”
There is no one particular political issue causing him to run – George Canyon just wants to see the area continue to prosper and grow.
For all concerned, rest assured, he won’t stop music!
Good for you George, make sure you know your stuff! There is so much good to be done and this is the party to do it with!
I hope he still does his music cuz he’s my favorite and I would miss him.
