SIDNEY — The Liberal Party of Canada in Saanich-Gulf Islands has acclaimed Saanich business owner Tim Kane, 62, as the Team Trudeau candidate for the next federal election.

Speaking to the nomination meeting at the Mary Winspear Centre, Kane said after decades as a supporter, the leap to candidate was a big jump but “not nearly as frightening as the view from the edge of the precipice that Stephen Harper has pushed Canada toward.”

“The Harper Conservatives have caused me to take a stand for change,” he said, “change that will restore the well-earned respect for our veterans, the middle class and the working poor, our scientists, law enforcement, our Constitution, the Supreme Court, our Parliament and the dying.”

Kane explained he believes Canada’s best hope is to encourage Canadians from all shades of the political spectrum to join him to help Justin Trudeau form a majority Liberal government.

“A Liberal government will end the Harper Conservatives’ attacks on scientists, bring new support for our veterans, create strong environmental policies that will enable Canada to stand tall in the world and see us deliver our natural resources to market in a responsible and consultative way.

“Our environment can’t wait any longer. We need action now. A Liberal government will undo the damage and make up for the neglect.”
