SURREY – MLA Harry Bains has issued the following statement regarding not seeking re-election:

“It has been the honour of a lifetime to represent the people of Surrey-Newton since I was first elected in 2005, and to serve as the Minister of Labour for our province.

“While this decision was not made lightly, I have decided to not run in the next election and allow someone new to continue the work we have begun.

“When I first decided to run many years ago, I started with a mission to take action on human rights and workers’ rights.  Under the leadership of Premiers John Horgan and now David Eby, I am proud of the work we’ve accomplished and the difference we have made in people’s lives.

“Serving British Columbians and people in my community has been truly fulfilling, but now I am looking forward to spending more time with my loved ones who have stood by me during my time in public office. I could not have done any of this without them and their support.

“I want to thank all of my constituents in Surrey-Newton for putting their trust in me to represent this amazing community.

“I also want to thank Premiers Horgan and Eby for the opportunity to represent working people and all British Columbians as the Minister of Labour. Their leadership and vision have been instrumental in driving positive change across the province, and I have full confidence that Premier Eby will continue to make life better for all British Columbians.”
