Bernadette Keenan: “The votes are adding up”

November 22, 2008

Bernadette Keenan, the recent federal and municipal candidate for Surrey, has announced her intention to seek election in the riding of Surrey-Whalley in the upcoming British Columbia provincial general election (May 12, 2009).

She states on her website: “Thanks to everyone who supported me for the federal, and municipal campaigns. The votes are adding up and sending a message that people are opposed to Gateway and the South Fraser Freeway. I am running in the provincial election this spring, so join me as I take this message on the campaign trail for the legislature, to overturn the destructive Gateway freeway plans, first hatched there by the Liberal government.”

Keenan maintained a busy pace in the recent municipal campaign, speaking out against the Gateway freeway expansion plans at the numerous all candidates meetings. Through the course of the campaign, several other candidates – some who had previously been neutral on the issue – joined her in denouncing Gateway and calling for the immediate expansion of public transit service in its place. She received formal endorsements from Green Party mayoral candidate Murray Weisenberger and the Rail for the Valley campaign, among others.
