Press Release: NDP In Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge Back Bob D’eith
By David Murray on May 5, 2015
“Beyond Bob’s extensive and vast experience, he is also committed to his community and a strong advocate for accountability, openness and action,” said NDP Leader Tom Mulcair. “The fact that, like me, he is also a former minor hockey coach, is just icing on the cake. I’m very happy to have him on our team.”
A father of five, D’Eith has been involved in the music industry for twenty-five years in a variety of capacities from two time JUNO Award nominee to music lawyer. For the past fourteen years, he has been the executive director of the Music BC Industry Association and, for the last two, an active member of the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council.
“I am honoured to have been chosen to be the NDP candidate for the Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge,” said D’Eith. “The people I speak with are ready for change and only Tom Mulcair has the experience and principled policies to replace Stephen Harper.”
Speaking after the meeting, D’Eith continues, “The NDP stands for the Canada that I know and love. A Canada that provides peace-keepers to countries in need. A Canada that cares about the environment, our water and our coast-lines. A compassionate Canada with a strong middle-class that takes care of those less fortunate. A Canada that values our rights and freedoms. I hope that I can be part of the solution, working with Tom Mulcair and the NDP to move our amazing country towards a Canada that we can all be proud of.”
