OTTAWA, ON – The Conservative Party of Canada is thrilled to announce Ellis Ross as the new common sense Conservative candidate in Skeena—Bulkley Valley. Ellis Ross is a proud British Columbian and former Chief of the Haisla Nation. He has served the people of Skeena as the MLA since 2017. Ross was the Minister of Natural Gas Development and Minister Responsible for Housing, and is currently the Critic for Energy & LGN.

“I believe in the potential of this province and our country. We need to unleash the power of our people and develop our resources in a sustainable way. We need to get rid of the bureaucracy holding up energy projects and cancel the NDP-Liberal carbon tax once and for all! Across the country, Canadians are feeling a sense of hope that they haven’t felt for years. Pierre Poilievre is a man who listens to the people and speaks to the very real issues that they are facing on a day-to-day basis,” said Ross.

“As Haisla Nation Chief and MLA, Ellis Ross has been fighting for his people his entire life. He fights for powerful paycheques by removing bureaucracy to harvest resources. He fights for the rights of hunters to keep their guns. He fights for lower taxes to reward work.

The choice for Skeena—Bulkley Valley is between a costly coalition of Trudeau and the NDP who will tax your food, punish your work, and take your hunting rifle, versus Common Sense Conservatives who free you to keep your rifle and earn powerful paycheques that buy affordable food, gas and homes,” said Pierre Poilievre.

After 8 years of Justin Trudeau, hardworking Canadians are struggling just to afford fuel, food, and shelter. Only a Common Sense Conservative government led by Pierre Poilievre will right this ship and put Canadians back in control of their lives by axing the carbon tax once and for all, building homes you can afford, getting energy projects approved and built, and capping wasteful and inflationary deficit spending. Ellis Ross will be a tremendous asset to the team and a strong advocate for the people of Skeena—Bulkley Valley.
