With the next federal election now just two months away, Conservative Member of Parliament representing Peace River-Westlock, Arnold Viersen, has announced he will run again for a second term in the region.
First elected in 2015, Viersen has been a member of the Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs and has served two years as Deputy Rural Affairs Critic and two years as Deputy Critic of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development. In 2016, Viersen introduced motion M-47, asking the Health Committee to study the health effects of access to online pornography. The motion was adopted unanimously by Parliament.
Over the past four years, Viersen has been an advocate for pipelines, resource development, farming and firearms ownership for constituents in his riding.
Viersen says he would like another opportunity to keep bringing the region’s important issues to Ottawa’s attention.
Viersen says pipelines and repealing the federal carbon tax are among the top priorities for the Conservative Party.
The next federal election is set to take place on or before October 21st.
