IAIN CURRIE - The most important issues affecting people of this riding closely mirror issues affecting the country as a whole: climate change, a changing economy, and a growing democratic deficit
Iain Currie is a father of three, and was born and raised in Kamloops. After completing law school at the University of British Columbia, Iain returned to his hometown to serve the public as a prosecutor for nearly eighteen years at the Kamloops Crown Counsel office - including five years as Deputy Regional Crown - taking on some of the highest-profile homicide cases in the province. In 2017, Iain left the Crown to return to private law practice in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest after meeting the love of his life, Lisa - a medical doctor who frequently serves as an expert witness in murder trials.
What are the three most important issues to Canadians as a whole?
Yes, I firmly believe in this statement. In fact, this is a hallmark of the Green Party’s approach to politics as well. We believe that it’s more important to get the right things done for Canadians than to get the credit for them, and that means working across party lines and supporting good ideas wherever they may arise.
An MP should first and foremost represent the people in his or her riding, not the MP’s party or its leader.
In the past, this riding has been represented by the Liberals, NDP, and Conservatives, and on several occasions by the opposition or third party in the House of Commons. Do you believe it is better for an MP to be part of the government side of the house, to enable them to more fully serve constituents?
