The BC Conservative Party acclaimed Nathaniel Lim as its candidate for Richmond-East at a nomination meeting on Sunday at South Arm Community Centre
The May provincial election is only a few months away and Lim, who is up against the powerhouses of long-standing BC Liberal Linda Reid, believes that the young people of Richmond must have a voice to represent their interest.
Lim, 31, said in a press release that he’s particularly concerned about the lack of high-paid jobs, unaffordable housing and increasing provincial debt, which he attests is “driving young people out of Richmond and out of British Columbia.”
Lim has a degree in social work and works with youth and families. He lives and works in Richmond and says he “sees firsthand the struggles that Richmond residents face,” adding that the “Liberal government has lost touch with its constituents and no longer has their best interests in mind.”
