SALMON ARM, B.C. — The Member of Parliament for North Okanagan-Shuswap is looking to the future.

Mel Arnold has announced he intends to run for a second term in the 2019 federal election.

“After meeting with the Electoral District Association Board of Directors, I am happy to announce I will be seeking re-election in 2019,” says Arnold. “It has been an incredible honour and privilege to represent the constituents of North Okanagan-Shuswap — I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve.”

The Conservative from Salmon Arm says he will continue to stand up for hardworking Canadians and their families, especially the ones in his riding.

“In the two years since the last election, the Trudeau government has broken promises, increased taxes, attacked small businesses, and waged a war on farm families across our country,” said MP Arnold. “Justin Trudeau has added tens of billions of dollars to the national debt — a sad legacy that younger Canadians will be repaying for decades.”

In addition to being the MP for North Okanagan-Shuswap, Arnold has also been appointed the roles of Deputy Shadow Minister for Fisheries, Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard, Vice-Chair of the BC – Yukon Conservative Caucus and Co-Chair of the Conservative Hunting and Angling Caucus.
