The BC Green party says it has set the record for its best fundraising month ever and October is only half over.

A statement from the party says between October first and the 15th, just over 441-thousand dollars has been raised, about two-thousand dollars more than the previous record set in April 2017, during the last provincial election.

More than 100-thousand dollars of the newly raised funds has come in since Tuesday, when Leader Sonia Furstenau represented the Greens at the televised leaders' debate.

The party says another record has also been shattered because donors have already contributed more in this election than the BC Greens received during the entire 2017 writ period.
