The federal New Democratic Party has chosen Jonathan Silveira as its candidate for the by-election in South Surrey - White Rock. Resident of Surrey and founder of Surrey Kids Matter, Jonathan is known in his riding as a dedicated, passionate and eloquent community organizer.
"People here want and need someone who understands them and will stand up for them in Ottawa. The NDP and I are the only ones who can do it", said Jonathan Silveira in a release. "The Liberal government is too busy pandering to its wealthy and well-connected friends, it has completely lost touch with everyday Canadians. It's obvious that hardworking families can't trust Justin Trudeau and Bill Morneau to protect their pensions, help them find good stable jobs, or stand up to the US government".
