Liberals finally choose their man

THE Liberal party now has a candidate for the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding for the May 2 federal election.

Kyle Warwick, 22, is a fourth-year student at the University of British Columbia and a graduate of the Prince of Wales Secondary School in Vancouver.

He’ll be graduating from UBC this November with an honours degree in political science.

He has been involved in student politics and won election less than a week ago as the chief Alma Mater Society representative for the UBC Arts Undergraduate Society, indicates an online story posted by The Northern View April 2.

In speaking to The Terrace Standard as well on April 2, Warwick said he’s running to promote Liberal values.

“I’m excited by Mr. [Michael] Ignatieff, by his Learning Passport and by his stance on seniors’ homes,” said Warwick referring to the Liberal campaign platforms to financially assist post secondary education students and to help seniors.

“That’s different from the vision of prisons and jets from Mr. [Stephen] Harper.”

Although Warwick lives in Vancouver and is not from the riding, he says he will be campaigning here in person.

“I do believe that every Canadian has a right to choose to vote for Mr. Ignatieff and that by running, I am giving them that choice,” he said.

After deciding that he wanted to become a Liberal candidate, Warwick said he had a choice of the Skeena – Bulkley Valley riding or the Cariboo – Prince George riding.

“I had heard there might be some opportunity so I pursued it,” said Warwick of his ultimate decision to stand for the Liberals in Skeena.
