Letter: Former Surrey mayor endorses NDP candidate

Bob Bose says Cloverdale-Langley City candidate shares his concerns on the environment, development, improving transportation and more.

Today I officially endorse Rebecca Smith, the New Democratic candidate for Parliament in the Cloverdale-Langley City Riding.

Rebecca Smith shares my concern for the environment and the crisis of global warming in particular. She knows the importance of local environmental issues like the need for a careful balance between development, the protection of agricultural land, and the need for improved transportation.

At the same time, Rebecca is a career business woman, who knows the need for supporting small business. Smith has owned a successful small business helping clients achieve their financial needs. She has worked as a consultant to many nonprofit organizations like the B.C. Psychological Association and Bullyfree BC. 
Rebecca is running for Parliament because she truly cares about her community.

She is a person who takes the time to listen and offer solutions outside the box.
Rebecca is concerned about the cuts made to social services by both Stephen Harper’s Conservative government and the Liberal governments that came before him.

As to the proposed TPP deal, it is a bill of rights for the multinational corporations, as I confidently predict we will discover in the fine print when the details of the agreement are at last revealed to the public.
