Delta's New Democrats have their candidate for the upcoming federal election.
Ladner resident Randy Anderson-Fennell was acclaimed as the party's candidate at a nomination meeting at the South Delta Recreation Centre this week.
"I'm excited to join Jagmeet Singh's team of candidates and can't wait to get  out into the community and share our progressive values with my neighbours in  Delta," he told the Optimist.
"We have a bold plan to deliver universal pharmacare, create new affordable  housing and tackle climate change - and I'm only too thrilled to talk about  these things when I knock on your door!"
A nine-year Delta resident, he's an electrician for the Surrey School District. He has served for several years as an executive officer with his union, CUPE Local 728. He ran for the Delta school board in last fall's municipal election.
Tanya Corbet was acclaimed as the Conservative candidate in Delta, Angelina Ireland is running for the People's Party of Canada, while Craig DeCraene is the Delta Green candidate.
