With election speculation picking up speed this summer, the Conservative party of Canada has put its affairs in order and now stand ready to contest the vote, should the Prime Minister choose to take the nation to the polls.

And as it was in 2019, Kitimat resident Claire Rattée will be the Conservative candidate in Skeena-Bulkley Valley. Ms. Rattée announcing her success towards the nominations through Social media earlier this evening.

Two candidates had announced for the race prior to this weekend, with Theresa Tait-Day also seeking the Conservative post along with Ms. Rattée. 

No details as to how the nomination process went forward were released today.

On election night of October 22nd 2019, the Conservative candidate gained some impressive results after a strong campaign, but came up short of Taylor Bachrach who had gained the NDP nomination following the retirement of Nathan Cullen.

Mr. Bachrach had a 3,188 vote advantage over Ms. Rattee when the final tallies were posted by Elections Canada

Her success in the nomination process as announced this evening makes for a rematch between the two top contenders.

The other political parties have started to fill out their nomination cards as well, we outlined the status of Skeena-Bulkley Valley earlier this week

  1. Terrible candidate. And shocking her response to this issue:

    She became quite rude when asked about this. In a riding with such a large percentage of First Nations, with the very real issue of MMIW, her lackadaisical attitude to buying a human skull should tell you something about her.
