“As someone who has worked and lived in this area my entire life, I cherish my connections with its cities, districts and villages and want to have a meaningful conversation with their residents,” Jones said.

“The restrictions of COVID-19 have made it impossible to do in-person visits to all the communities that make up the North Coast riding … Through the Internet, I will be getting face-to-face, safely, with as many as possible so we can talk about what’s most important to each one of us.”

Jones is of Haida descent and has spent his career as a commercial fisherman and advocate for economic opportunities in North Coast communities.

“In concert with the BC Liberals election platform, Mr. Jones is promoting a vision for the North Coast that includes a balance between vigorous economic growth and environmentally-sustainable practices. He is also committed to unlocking access to additional housing in coastal communities, by serving as a powerful voice for the region in the BC Legislature.
