The Green Party of Canada has chosen its candidate for the Kingston and the Islands riding within the upcoming federal election.

Dr. Waji Khan, who has run a dental practice in Kingston since 2008, will likely be the party’s candidate within the upcoming fall election.

Khan also served as a captain within the Canadian Armed Forces and continues to serve within the Reserve Forces with the sector ambulance service.

With Khan’s candidacy, there are only two parties left to announce their Kingston and the Islands candidates — the Conservative Party and the People’s Party of Canada.

Global News has been in contact with the Conservative Riding Association for the region. It says it’ll be providing an update on the region’s standing within the federal election later Tuesday.

To date, incumbent Mark Gerretsen will likely be running again for a 3rd term for the Liberals, and newcomer Vic Sahai, who worked as a public health professor and researcher with Queen’s University, will likely be running for the NDP.

The federal election is slated for Sept. 20.
