Telkwa, B.C. man named to head federal political party

Rod Taylor acclaimed as leader of the Christian Heritage Party of Canada

A TELKWA man who has run in the region several times as a candidate for the Christian Heritage Party of Canada has been acclaimed as its new national leader.

Rod Taylor was named to the position yesterday at the party’s triennial convention in Hamilton, Ontario.

Taylor has also been deputy party leader in addition to running in the Skeena-Bulkley Valley federal running four times.

In speaking to convention delegates, Taylor emphasized readiness leading into next fall’s federal election.

That included adding new members to the party and more member involvement at the riding level.

There are 308 ridings in the House of Commons and the Christian Heritage Party ran 46 candidates in the 2011 federal election.

Taylor ran fifth out of six candidates, collecting 1,038 votes or 2.96 per cent

of the voter turnout.
