Social and Economic Infrastructure for the Alberni Valley

November 07, 2018

Infrastructure funds benefit federal Liberal ridings most

The Liberals have not elected a Member of Parliament (“MP”) North of Victoria in over 44 years and are ignoring Vancouver Island.

The NDP have never in Canadian history formed government in Ottawa and Jagmeet Singh and our current NDP MP have no effective political power to deliver real results for the Alberni Valley.

A Conservative MP in a Conservative Government will deliver Social and Economic Infrastructure for the Alberni Valley.


History speaks for itself. Prior to 2015, our region was Conservative and the former Conservative MP delivered millions in federal spending for many positive investments in the Alberni Valley, including:

  • Pre-feasibility study for a trans-shipment hub for the Port of Port Alberni
  • Funding towards Port Alberni Visitor Centre
  • Funding to help rebuild the Port Alberni Athletic Hall

If elected your MP, I will work with the city, the regional district, the province, and the Nuu Chah Nulth Nations to prioritize social and economic infrastructure investments for the Alberni Valley, including funds towards the replacement of the aging Echo ’67 Centre Pool in Port Alberni.

I have fond memories of coming to the Echo Centre for swim meets but this picture of me was taken when I was 7 years old – it was already over 10 years old then!
