Keithley is seeking the New Democratic Party (NDP) nomination in the British Columbia riding of CoquitlamĖBurke 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 Iím elected, I wonít be able to do any D.O.A. shows for four years... If I get re-elected, I wonít be doing any for eight years. If Iím elected for 12 years, maybe Iíll be premier and can laze around. Iím joking, right? So yes, it is a farewell tour in that sense. But if Iím defeated, I still own my guitar.
