Keithley is seeking the New Democratic Party (NDP) nomination in the British Columbia riding of Coquitlam-Burke Mountain. In both the 1996 and 2001 he ran for the Green Party in the (now dissolved) riding of Burnaby-Willingdon. He recently spoke to CBC Radio 3 about the change (you can listen to the audio here):
Put it this way: if I'm elected, I won't be able to do any D.O.A. shows for four years... If I get re-elected, I won't be doing any for eight years. If I'm elected for 12 years, maybe I'll be premier and can laze around. I'm joking, right? So yes, it is a farewell tour in that sense. But if I'm defeated, I still own my guitar.
