A party that wants to drastically lower immigration levels no longer has a candidate in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection campaign.
According to a brief media release from the National Citizens Alliance on Friday afternoon, the party has “withdrawn its candidate Jakob Letkemann from [the] Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection due to irreconcilable differences in regard to the NCA values and mission.”
The National Citizens Alliance is a registered federal political party and Letkemann was confirmed as a candidate by the April 15 deadline. The deadline to withdraw has passed, so Letkemann and the NCA will remain on the ballot.
Letkemann did not participate in an all-candidates’ meeting Thursday and did not respond to e-mailed questions about his priorities.
