B.C. VOTES 2020: Parksville-Qualicum candidate Adam Walker, B.C. NDP

Election day in B.C. is Oct. 24

The PQB News will be running candidate submissions for every candidate running in the Parksville-Qualicum riding. The following is the submission filed by B.C. NDP candidate Adam Walker.

I’m a small business owner, town councillor, and farmer. I’ve owned and operated tech businesses in the region for more than 15 years. My wife and I have a small farm and are raising two daughters.

Since 2018, I’ve been a town councillor in Qualicum Beach.

I have lived in the Qualicum Beach area all my life.

The people in Parksville-Qualicum are my friends, my family and my neighbours – I want to do what I can to make life better for them.

That’s why I’m so excited to be running in this election on John Horgan’s team.

I want to work with John Horgan to build on the work the BC NDP has already done. We have a plan to increase access to quality health care and seniors care, and build a stronger, healthier future by taking action on climate change.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, I know that many of us feel uncertain about the future.

I’m hearing from people that they are worried about their health and the health of their family and loved ones.

That’s why we need a strong and stable John Horgan government to see us through this pandemic and build a recovery that includes everyone.
