PPC announce candidate for Cowichan-Malahat-Langford

The 44th Canadian federal election will take place on or before Oct. 16, 2023

The People’s Party of Canada has officially announced their Cowichan-Malahat-Langford candidate for the 44th federal general election.

Mark Hecht was officially acclaimed on May 17.

“It is an honour to be selected by the Southern Vancouver Island EDA to represent Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada in the riding of Cowichan-Malahat-Langford,” Hecht said. “Maxime’s voice and message represents the opinions and perspectives of thousands of Canadians across the country who feel like the traditional political parties have ignored them. After a decade-long career as a university instructor, and a writer, now was the right time for me to bring courage and common sense to the decisions that affect our country’s future. I am proud to stand with our leader and team of candidates.”

In the 43rd federal election in 2019, Rhonda Chen represented the PPC and the party took 1.63 per cent of the votes.

Jordan Quitzau, CEO of the Southern Vancouver Island EDA — PPC Association, is thrilled to have Hecht on board for the next election.

“I am very excited to begin working with Mark Hecht as our PPC candidate for Cowichan-Malahat-Langford,” Quitzau said. “Mark is an authentic Canadian, whose cunning, wit, and compassion will win over the district’s confidence and make him an excellent representative. I am eager to start campaigning immediately, working with Mark to spread our message of individual freedom, fairness, personal responsibility, and respect.”

The 44th Canadian federal election will take place on or before Oct. 16, 2023.
