Dale Shudra announced that he is seeking the Conservative Party of Canada nomination for Kootenay Columbia. The voting dates and other nomination details have not yet been finalized and the party must approve all nomination candidates.
The last nomination contest was held in 2011. Dale entered the contest but withdrew
following the death of a close family member. He says “I did not plan to run again but
feel compelled and excited to enter the contest this time around. These are difficult
times and good, competent people need to step up and lead. While being an effective
Member of Parliament has its challenges, it presents unique opportunities to
significantly benefit our communities and country”.
Dale and his wife reside in Radium. His education includes graduating with law (LLB)
and business (MBA) degrees. Dale has extensive business/entrepreneurial and legal
experience in diverse areas including natural resources, real estate, finance and
manufacturing. He believes that his background, knowledge, analytical skills and strong
work ethic will translate into a much-needed political presence for Kootenay Columbia.
Shudra says and believes “that despite social issues getting most of the press, citizens
want governments that are fiscally responsible while pursuing social agendas”. He fears
where we are heading economically. Dale says “Missteps have led us down a troubling
path and we need to regain our status as a preferred country to do business with and
invest in. Some of the current governments are spending more effort apologizing for
our resource industries rather than promoting and supporting their responsible
development. We will continue to pay an economic price if this is not corrected”.
Dale is a compassionate community leader who coached minor sports for many seasons,
served three times as a Rotary president and sits on various boards and advisory
committees. His political activities include serving on both federal and provincial riding
association boards. Last year, Dale was president of his local riding association where the
candidate was successfully elected MLA. This has convinced him that the Conservatives
can win back Kootenay Columbia with similar hard work, a team effort and a good
candidate. “I plan to be that capable Conservative candidate” he says “who gets elected
and makes a needed difference”.
