Another candidate has entered the federal election race to represent the Cariboo-Prince George riding.
Vice President of the BC Christian Heritage Party, 23-year-old Adam de Kroon of Quesnel says he believes his party’s policies work for everyone.
“We have a lot of small government type economic policies that I think many people would identify with and want to support like policies to lower taxes-me personally, I would like to see income tax not exist for individuals who earn roughly less than $30,000.”
de Kroon says one of Stephen’s Harper bills including C-51, was what prompted him to put his name forward.
“Well, I think the last couple of years many people that I’ve spoken to have been pretty unhappy with the Conservative government…I think now more so than ever there’s a real need for a good solid conservative candidate who opposes threats to individual liberties like the Conservatives have been trying to pass during the last couple of years.”
de Kroon who also works part-time at the local sawmill and is completing his Bachelor of Arts in computer science, says his party is also pro-life.
He’s currently up against Todd Doherty with the Conservatives and Tracy Calogheros of the Liberals.
