Randall Garrison seeks NDP nomination in new riding

Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke new riding for New Democrat MP

  • Sep. 16, 2014 8:00 a.m.

Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP Randall Garrison will seek the NDP nomination in the new riding of Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke for the upcoming federal election.

“Every day I see more evidence of how (Stephen) Harper’s out of touch policies and mismanagement are making life harder for Canadians,” said Garrison in a released statement. “Every day I see the values that have made Canada a great nation being eroded. That is why I have decided to seek re-election as the NDP candidate in Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke,” Garrison said.

As the result of the redistribution, Langford and Highlands will join the new riding of Cowichan-Malahat-Langford. The rest of Esquimalt Juan de Fuca will be joined with an additional portion of Saanich to make up the new riding of Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke.

Garrison was first elected as a Member of Parliament in 2011.

He previously served as a councillor in the Township of Esquimalt and spent two decades teaching criminal justice and political science at Camosun College.

He continues to reside in Esquimalt with his partner, Teddy Pardede.
