An introduction to Kootenay East NDP candidate Norma Blissett.

I’ve lived in Cranbrook for the past 18 years and have had the benefit of raising three children in this community.  I’ve always wanted to make a difference. That’s why I went into forestry and worked as a registered professional forester. That’s why I went into teaching and that’s why I have entered politics.  I’ve seen through my involvement in various community groups that individuals can make a difference and in fact we must.

After 12 years of Liberal government it’s time for a change. It’s time for a new government with better priorities. It’s time for a government that will grow a sustainable economy, create jobs and reinvest in our land. The BC NDP will invest in education and skills training, reduce inequality and improve healthcare. These are provincial and East Kootenay priorities.

As we announce our platform we will tell you what we are going to do and how we are going to pay for it. There won’t be any HST-like surprises once we’re elected.

That’s our commitment – practical changes that will make a real difference in peoples’ lives.

Please support me in bringing change for the better to Kootenay East, one practical step at a time.
