NDP Nominates Taylor Bachrach as candidate in Skeena-Bulkley Valley
SMITHERS – On Saturday, New Democrats in Skeena-Bulkley Valley nominated MP Taylor Bachrach to run as their NDP candidate in the next federal election.
For four years, Bachrach has been a strong voice for Northwestern British Columbians in the House of Commons. He has been a staunch defender of rural and remote communities, standing up for the federal services and investments people need. He’s also been a clear voice on climate action in the face of droughts and wildfires, and has stood up for workers in their fight for better wages and conditions.
“Taylor has brought a strong, unwavering voice to the House of Commons on behalf of his constituents,” said NDP leader Jagmeet Singh. “He works incredibly hard to represent a huge riding far from Ottawa, and in a minority Parliament he’s managed to deliver tangible wins for Northwest BC. I’m proud to call him a member of our team and thankful he will continue to work alongside us as we fight for all Canadians.”
Bachrach has worked alongside farmers to get financial aid; forced the government to open a passport office in Northern B.C.; stood with striking public servants, smelter workers and port workers; and continues to push for public dental care, pharmacare and affordable housing.
“It’s an incredible honour to represent Skeena-Bulkley Valley and the people who call this place home,” said Bachrach. “In challenging times like the ones we now face when many of our neighbours are struggling with the cost of living, I’m more determined than ever to push for the solutions they need.”
