|CHP Leader is back in Skeean-|
Bulkley Valley as Rod Taylor
will be their candidate for this
falls federal election
As we noted back in 2016, Mr. Taylor is somewhat of a perpetual candidate, often found whenever a by-election is called and a regular fixture on ballots whenever the General vote is called.
He has however had a fairly strong attachment to the Skeena-Bulkley Valley riding having run for office in it four times from 2004 to 2011, hitting the road after that for some cross country attempts to gain a seat in the House of Commons.
Most recently he ran in the 2017 by-election in South Surrey-White Rock.
The Elections Canada database provides the travel itinerary for candidate Taylor over the last fifteen years.
The party which has yet to ever elect a Member of Parliament, for the most part seems to make use of the election campaigns as an awareness raising process towards many of their themes.
You can explore those themes through their website and Facebook pages.
Taylor who is also the Leader of the Christian Heritage Party, makes for the second declared candidate in the riding for the fall vote.
Last weekend Conservatives in Skeena-Bulkley Valley selected Claire Ratée as their candidate.
The Liberal and Green parties have yet to indicate when they will select their candidates for the election campaign ahead.
Incumbent MP Nathan Cullen has yet to indicate if he plans on contesting the 2019 election, Cullen has been the NDP Member of Parliament for Skeena-Bulkley Valley since 2004 and contested and won elections on five occasions.
