Working for you in Stikine
Elected twice as an MLA, Doug Donaldson stands up for people in Stikine, helping individuals, communities and businesses. He is the BC NDP’s spokesperson for energy and mining and has also held the Children and Families portfolio.
Doug served four terms as a municipal councillor in Hazelton. He has worked as a biologist with a forestry consulting business, a reporter and newspaper columnist, coordinator of the cultural tourism program at Northwest Community College and on the Delgamuukw aboriginal title case with the Gitxsan hereditary chiefs. He has also been a small business owner.
After stays in Smithers and Telkwa, Doug made his home in Hazelton. He and his wife Anne have a small-scale farm where they grow produce and raise livestock. His two adult sons are working in the trades and the family recently welcomed their second granddaughter.
Doug travels extensively throughout Stikine, which overlays the traditional territories of seven First Nations. He and Anne enjoy the outdoors and cherish the clean air, land and water, which coincidentally, is the basis of the quality-of-life and deep relationships in Stikine.
Doug has worked hard for the people of Stikine, but he’s seen how Christy Clark’s choices are hurting people in our northern communities. Her government’s hikes to MSP fees, Hydro and ICBC rates are making life less affordable for everyone. And while families are struggling, she is giving her rich friends tax breaks. We can’t afford another four years of Christy Clark.
Doug is standing with John Horgan and the BC NDP. It's time to build a better BC — with access to reliable healthcare, great schools, and good-paying jobs that last. It's time you had a government that works for you.
You can count on Doug and John Horgan to work for you.
