Northwestern B.C. federal election candidate switches ridings

Christian Heritage Party leader Rod Taylor now running in nation's capital

  • Aug. 20, 2015 8:00 p.m.

Bulkley Valley resident Rod Taylor, the leader of the Christian Heritage Party, isn’t running in the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding in this federal election.

Instead Taylor, elected as his party’s leader last fall, is running in the nation’s capital in the Ottawa West-Nepean riding.

“I thought it important as leader to bring the [Christian Heritage Party] message to the Capital Region,” said Taylor today.

Northwestern party members are expected to choose their candidate for this riding early next week.

Taylor has run as the party candidate in the 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2011 federal elections. In 2011 he received just under 3 per cent of the vote.

Taylor’s new riding was represented by John Baird who, until his resignation earlier this year, served in several senior cabinet posts in the Conservative government.
