Conservatives in Burnaby North-Seymour have chosen 31-year-old Kelsey Shein as their candidate for the upcoming federal election.
Kelsey was born in Vancouver and lives in Burnaby. She can’t wait to get started. “I’m a life-long Conservative, and grew up in and around this riding,” says Kelsey. “I’ve knocked on doors in dozens of campaigns, worked in Ottawa for Conservative MPs, and now want to represent the hard-working people of Burnaby North-Seymour as we strengthen Canada coming out of Covid.”
Jim Pigott, President of the Burnaby North-Seymour Conservative riding association, says local party members are keen to support Kelsey’s campaign and to “turn Burnaby North-Seymour blue.”
“We have a strong membership, a good group of eager volunteers, and the resources we need to fight a winning campaign,” he says.
“As I’ve talked with voters and small business owners in the riding it is clear that the Trudeau Liberals have let us all down,” says Kelsey. “The vaccine procurement and roll-out has been haphazard and inconsistent, and our economic recovery is being held back by high taxes and regulatory burdens that make no sense in the current economy.”
“First and foremost, we need serious economic management in Ottawa that frees up Canadians to invest and build a competitive economy. Voters tell me they want to see an end to the scandals that reward Liberal friends at the expense of taxpayers,” she adds. “And the community wants to see further traffic and transit improvements,” Shein says.
“The current construction in North Van leading to the Second Narrows was approved under the last Conservative government. More needs to be done to help people get around the community and to work and enjoy this wonderful area. I want to fight for the improvements we all want to see.”
