Vernon will be the backdrop as B.C.’s official opposition tackles post-secondary education.

NDP leader Adrian Dix and advanced education critic Michelle Mungall will hold a press conference at Okanagan College’s Kalamalka campus Friday at 3 p.m.

“They will be meeting with post-secondary students and making an announcement,” said an NDP caucus employee, who would not get into specific details.

The announcement at Okanagan College will be followed by Dix attending a Vernon-Monashee NDP dinner at the Pantry. Tickets can be purchased by calling 250-542-6956.

There will then be an opportunity for the public to meet Dix at the Pantry at 7:30 p.m. There is no cost for the meet-and-greet.
