Introduction to North Island-Powell River Candidates

Peter Schwarzhoff

My name is Peter Schwarzhoff and I am your Liberal candidate for North Island – Powell River.

I was born in Ocean Falls, but grew up in Campbell River in a pulp mill family.

My career in public service, in the Air Force and Environment Canada as a meteorologist and later as a manager of environmental research, has taken me across Canada and to Europe.

I am one of those scientists who was muzzled by the Harper government that needs to change. Good policy requires good science, and trust of policy requires transparency. You and I need to know that we can trust government to protect our environment while ensuring our nation’s prosperity.

My first-hand experience will help restore the trust that has been lost in the environmental assessment process.

Important to me are the men and women who have served in uniform.

Our treatment of our veterans is disgraceful. I am proud that my party will restore and improve benefits to meet our sacred obligation to our vets.

Liberals have a strong team that is ready to offer better government in Ottawa.

And we have a bold plan that will create jobs with the most significant infrastructure investment in Canadian history – almost $60 billion in new funding over the next 10 years; I will ensure that our region gets its share of that investment.

Our plan will grow the middle class by raising taxes on the wealthiest one percent and cutting taxes for middle class Canadians;

Putting money in the pockets of the average citizen will strengthen our local economy.

And our plan will help those working to join the middle class by investing in essential social infrastructure, including affordable housing and child care, as well as providing more money to help families that need it with the high cost of raising their kids.
