Glendon Charles Smedley ❌ not elected

Glendon is a rally regular. He’s a fan of christofascist preacher Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, COVID conspiracy theories, Maxime Bernier, Jeremy MacKenzie/Diagalon, Rebel News, Chris Sky, and what appears to be every popular far-right influencer in Canada. He seems to think that Residential Schools weren’t such a big deal and climate change is fake.


Ron Cannan ✅ elected

Brian Rogers ❌ not elected

Brian is a former PPC candidate, antivaxxer, and fan of far-right influencer Viva Frei.

Chris Williams (Spirit Alliance)
❌ not elected

Sacheen Collecutt (Spirit Alliance)
❌ not elected

Spirit Alliance is a new political organization of dubious origin. Traditional conservative “tough on crime” values coupled with a complete inability for candidates to coherently discuss vaccinations, LGBTQ2S+ rights, and other hot topics is pretty big clue that they aren’t as close to the political centre as they claim to be.

InfoTel: Kelowna’s new political slate is right-wing — but how right wing?

Spirit Alliance used a lot of conservative weasel words during the municipal election period. Since elections ended, they’ve gone full mask-off in their support of the far right.

This is Parents Voice BC

Parents Voice BC is a social conservative party that shelters anti-SOGI 123 activists, transphobia, religious fundamentalism, the convoy/freedom movement, and COVID-related conspiracy theories. Parents Voice BC is recommended by Action4Canada.  

Action4Canada promotes far-right extremism based in religious fundamentalism. From their website: “Our mission is to protect Canada’s rich heritage which is founded on Judeo-Christian biblical principles. Inherited through our British Commonwealth and embedded in the Magna Carta, these principles form our laws and values and are the basis of a system of governance that sets us apart from totalitarian, extremist and communist regimes.” (Others might describe that as “white supremacist-flavoured Christofascism.”) They rally against SOGI education, LGBT2S+ rights, Islam, abortions, climate change science, immigration, and 5G. Action4Canada predates the pandemic, but quickly began rallying against public health mandates, vaccines, and basic medical science.
