Following the resignation of former CHP-BC Leader Wilf Hanni, Deputy Leader, Rod Taylor, has accepted the responsibilities of leading the Christian Heritage Party of BC on an Interim basis.
Mr. Hanni stepped down in June due to family health issues and business commitments. He continues to be a strongly-supportive member of CHP-BC and intends to continue to assist the party in policy development.
Rod Taylor resides in Telkwa, BC, with his wife, Elaine. They celebrate 39 years of marriage this year. They have two children and four grandchildren. Mr. Taylor works full-time as the National Development Director for CHP Canada, the federal counterpart to CHP-BC. He also serves the national party in the role of Deputy Leader to Mr. Jim Hnatiuk, National Leader.
Working with CHP-BC’s President, Louis Kwantes, Mr. Taylor says the provincial party plans to hold a Leadership Contest at its next AGM, in the Spring of 2014. This year’s AGM was held in Telkwa but next year’s will likely be held in BC’s Lower Mainland.
Mr. Taylor was one of two candidates who ran for the party in the 2013 provincial election. The next four years will be dedicated to growing party membership and further policy development. The party calls on all those who may be interested in seeking the leadership of CHP-BC to step forward and submit their names so that the membership can get to know them prior to the Leadership Contest in 2014.
