Working for Fraser Nicola
Harry Lali has a wealth of experience working for BC and the people of Fraser Nicola.
He was first elected as a Merritt city councillor in 1988 then as an MLA in the BC Legislature in 1991. Harry served as Minister for Transportation and Highways, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Forests and is historically the longest-serving NDP MLA from Rural BC as well as the longest-serving South Asian MLA, MPP or MP in Canadian history.
Harry was an Employment Counsellor for the federally-sponsored Merritt Outreach Program from 1986 – 1991, he worked at MOSAIC - an immigrant-oriented public service in Vancouver, was a member of the IWA Local 1-417 (now Steelworkers) working in the sawmill industry and formerly co-owned a sporting goods store.
Being involved in BC politics for nearly 30 years, Harry has seen how things are getting worse under Christy Clark. From the depleted of the resource industry, to the war on public education, to the lost supports for seniors and health care, to the affordability issues facing people across BC, Harry knows that it is time for change.
Christy Clark is giving tax breaks to the rich and making the cost of living rise for regular British Columbians. She has turned her back on Fraser Nicola and Harry wants to bring the voice of the people in Fraser Nicola back to the BC Legislature.
Alongside John Horgan and the BC NDP, Harry wants to make sure that the people of Fraser Nicola are no longer left behind. Let’s elect a government that will put all British Columbians first.
