Deepak To Run For Second Time

A long-time resident of Northern BC and a familiar face to provincial politics is back at it. Bobby Deepak is seeking the nomination to run for the New Democrats in the riding of Prince George-Mackenzie in the upcoming provincial election. He says, having grown up in the North, he has deep concerns about the issues affecting the communities in that riding.
“I am surprised at the number of people who have asked me to run but mostly I am surprised at the diverse political backgrounds who have come to me to say they are in support,” says Deepak. “There seems to be an underground swell of support I did not see the last election.”
He says he will focus his campaign on three issues: a strong and effective Northern voice, jobs and an economy for everyone, not just the wealthy.
Deepak is expected to be acclaimed on March 4th.
