And then there were four.
Anti-chlorination activist and professional photographer Kim Reimer will run for the Green Party in the Chilliwack riding on May 14.
Reimer and her husband Jake are behind the online petition www.chilliwackwater.com created to protest Fraser Health's edict that the City of Chilliwack start to chlorinate its drinking water.
That petition had 4,470 signatures as of Thursday morning.
Reimer told the Times she was approached by the party because of the petition. She decided to go ahead with it and three days ago made it official.
Reimer said she has no background in politics other than volunteering for the federal Greens.
While much has been made by the BC Liberals about vote splitting on the right and the BC Conservatives handing seats to the NDP in some ridings, for example Chilliwack-Hope, New Democrat candidate Patti MacAhonic might not like to see a Green in the race in Chilliwack for the same reason.
"If there is no Green, typically the Greens will vote NDP," Reimer conceded. "But honestly I think that a lot of things in the Green Party platform will appeal to dissatisfied Conservatives and Liberals."
Reimer and her husband are professional photographers and run website design company out of their home.
Reimer's name will be on the ballot but it's likely she will not have the financial backing to run a high-profile campaign.
"We'll mostly be doing doorknocking and social media and showing up at debates," she said.
Reimer is up against MacAhonic for the NDP, Liberal John Martin and Conservative Chad Eros.
