I’m honoured to be elected president of the new Vancouver Centre Conservative EDA. It is bittersweet for me to say thank you to our outgoing president, Paul Tolnai. He has built us a solid organization in his two terms, and I am grateful for his dedication to our cause.
Our riding has made history over the years by electing some very prominent Tories, but the opportunity that lies ahead is what I’m most excited about. In less than two years from now, Canadians will once again head to the polls to elect a new Parliament.
Here in Vancouver, we’ll have the opportunity to elect an MP who will represent our beautiful city with a seat at the government table. Our goal will be to build upon the positive governance that Conservatives have brought to Canada: 1,000,000 net new jobs since the end of the recession in 2009 (the best job creation record among the G7 countries), a free trade agreement with the European Union that eliminates tariffs and promotes jobs on both sides of the Atlantic, a record on human rights abroad that resonates at the very heart of our community, and a commitment to a balanced budget in 2015. (Once again, we’ll be the first in the G7 to do so.)
Thank you everyone for your support! Tonight is a celebration…tomorrow we get back to work on ensuring a Conservative Member of Parliament is elected in the next federal election in Vancouver Centre!
