KAMLOOPS — With exactly 100 days to go until the B.C. provincial election, efforts are ramping up for Kamloops NDP candidates.

On Saturday South-Thompson NDP candidate Nancy Bepple and volunteers spent the day knocking on doors to see what issues are of highest concern for city residents. 

North-Thompson NDP candidate Barb Nederpel and a team of 20 volunteers are gearing up to scour the Brock area, doing the same on Sunday afternoon.

"The fact is we are 100 days out, now is the time to get up, get engaged and start building a better British Columbia," said Nederpel. "Unlike the B.C liberals who have a lot of money because they refuse to ban corporate donations and thus are able to a massive airwar, we simply don't have access to that, " said Nederpel. "We get the most benefit by knocking on doors and having those face-to-face conversations."

Nederpel says jobs, affordable living, and the cities doctor shortage has been residents greatest concerns leading up to the election. 

The next stop for NDP canvassers is Clearwater and Barriere, which they're scheduled to visit in the next few weeks.
