Delta Fire Fighters Local IAFF 1763 is proud to endorse Carla Qualtrough for election as the MP for Delta.
Local IAFF 1763 President Brad Wilson noted that “Carla has a demonstrated commitment to our community which combined with her clear understanding of the most pressing issues that Fire Fighters and other First Responders confront won our local support.”
The Delta Fire Fighters met with local candidates and saw in Qualtrough an articulate fighter who would champion the issues that are most important to First Responders and the communities they serve.
“Carla’s list of personal and professional accomplishments is impressive: human rights lawyer, Paralympic medalist and proud mother of four”, President Brad Wilson stated. “She is also married to a veteran and the mother of a son in military training. She understands service and sacrifice. Her humble, grounded style combined with a commitment to serving others resonated with our members and we think this will resonate with Delta voters as well.”
“I am honoured to receive this endorsement and look forward to the opportunity to be a vocal advocate as a Member of Parliament,” responds Qualtrough. “The Delta Fire Fighters perform essential work in our community and I am committed to supporting them.”
As a show of support, members of the Delta Fire Fighters will join Qualtrough at public events in the weeks to come. Says Wilson, “Carla has proven she can deliver for our community and will be an excellent Member of Parliament for the new riding of Delta.”
