SKEENA NDP MLA Robin Austin endorsed federal leadership candidate Nathan Cullen Nov. 11.

Austin announced his endorsement of the Skeena – Bulkley Valley Member of Parliament at an event in Terrace.

“The truly outstanding attribute that Nathan brings to the leadership is his ability to communicate with people in such a way that he not only de-mystifies politics, but enables all who hear him to connect their own wishes, dreams and values to what is possible in this great country,” Austin said.

His endorsement was not a surprise in that Austin played a role at Cullen’s announcement late September in Vancouver that he was running for the leadership.
