On Saturday, April 9, 2016, the Christian Heritage Party of BC elected a new President, Pastor Ron Short from Cranbrook, BC.
Ron took up the duties of President immediately, as Mr. Luke Kwantes, who has served faithfully as President and Treasurer for the past three years, has now moved to Alberta.
Following the Joint AGM between the BC Council of the federal CHP Canada and CHP-BC, the board of CHP-BC met and appointed David Lynn Simcox as Treasurer / Financial Agent for the Party.
Mrs. Janet O’Leary has accepted the role of Secretary.
Interim Leader, Mr. Rod Taylor of Telkwa, BC, will continue as leader until a suitable replacement can be found. Mr. Taylor currently leads the national Christian Heritage Party of Canada as well, and for that reason, hopes to find a replacement to carry the CHP-BC banner into the May, 2017 BC Election. However, he is prepared to lead the Party into the election, if no suitable replacement can be found.
Addressing the choices ahead for voters, both provincially and federally, Mr. Taylor said this:“Provincial matters are just as important as federal matters; health, education and welfare are critical issues about which, CHP-BC has much to say. We need to offer the voters of BC a viable alternative at the polls. We are looking, right now, for passionate citizens of high moral character, who will stand in the gap for the young people of this province; people who will stand up for the vulnerable – the preborn, the elderly and the disabled – and will work to restore justice and freedom in BC provincial politics.
We hope to find good candidates to carry the CHP-BC banner in 2017. We are ready to work with them, train them and present them to the voters of BC.”
