Wai Young Officially Launches Her Campaign

September 10th, 2019

VANCOUVER, British Columbia

Vancouver Community Leaders gathered on Monday to support Conservative Candidate Wai Young’s bid to regain her seat in Vancouver South in the federal election on October 21st. As the Member of Parliament from 2011- 2015, Young was on the Standing Committee for Infrastructure and helped champion over 60 major projects in the Vancouver area, to the benefit of her constituents.

“As the former Member of Parliament for Vancouver South, I was particularly proud to have secured the funding for the Killarney Senior’s Centre after 18 years of inaction by the former Liberal MP. If elected, I plan to deliver the Sunset Seniors Centre after the last four years of inaction by the current liberal MP.” – Wai Young

In her speech to hundreds of supporters, Young shared how constituents are looking for a change in Ottawa, as the Liberal government’s economic policies and ethics have been consistently called into question over the past four years. She also shared her plans for Vancouver South.

“There are many challenges that are facing the residents of this great riding, especially with the massive growth in Oakridge and the River District. As a lifelong resident, voters know that I understand Vancouver South and our needs for the future. I will work to make life more affordable and help families get ahead, by investing in infrastructure to help people get to work faster and restoring child benefits. I’ve heard from constituents about their priorities and I will work hard to:

  • Make life more affordable for families and seniors in expensive Vancouver
  • Invest in infrastructure for better transit
  • Safeguard our children from drugs
  • Reduce neighbourhood crime and;
  • Review the mortgage stress test to help achieve home ownership, not hurt it

Voters will remember Wai Young’s 35 years of experience working in Vancouver South. As they head to the polls this October, it will be important that they choose a candidate who will properly represent their interests in Ottawa.
