My name is Bryce Casavant. I am the NDP candidate for Oak Bay – Gordon Head and you’ll likely remember my story. In 2015, I was the BC Conservation Officer that was suspended for saving the lives of two orphaned bear cubs. The story gained international attention, and a petition of over 300,000 signatures was collected to support my reinstatement. In the end, I was transferred to another branch of the BC provincial government. At my core I know that my purpose is to serve the public and to serve you. It’s what I have done my whole life and it is an honour to represent you in this next election.
To better introduce myself, I put together a blog and personal video about my education and experience. I have much to offer you and the community of Oak Bay – Gordon Head. You can read my new blog by clicking here.
Our campaign to turn this riding from green to orange is in full swing. I come with the strong progressive values that are at core of our movement and I am well positioned to attract both green and conservative votes to our social cause. I know, that with your help, we can build a better BC.
For the past few weeks, I have already canvassed several neighbourhoods and attended many community events (including the Stolen Sisters Memorial March). I have attended meetings with the Oak Bay Community Association, Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society and Fair Vote Canada (regarding proportional representation).
I also met with students at the University of Victoria, as well as Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen, members of council and local elected officials (including MLA Carole James, MLA Lana Popham, MLA Rob Flemming, MLA Gary Holman and MP Randall Garrison and MP Murray Rankin). They have all provided me with valuable insights and support.
But my best meetings so far have been with you, the individuals and small business owners who make the community of Oak Bay – Gordon Head such a special place.
YOUR voice is loud and clear
There are several issues that need immediate attention. And I want you to know that I hear you. From derelict vessels to urban deer, you need someone to get things done and to help get you the attention and provincial support you deserve.
Over the coming weeks you’ll be hearing more from me and the many ways in which you can help be part of this important movement.
I can’t thank you enough for the very warm welcome and for all of your encouragement.
P.S. – Even though I am a busy guy, I am always just an email or phone call away. Meeting and talking to residents in this community is a priority for me. Please contact me anytime at 778-533-6167 or Bryce@BryceCasavant.ca and let me know what I can do for you.
