DeLong running for Conservatives in Cowichan-Malahat-Langford

One-time Alberta MLA aims for a seat in Ottawa

Alana DeLong will carry the Conservative Party of Canada banner in the October 2019 federal election in the Cowichan-Malahat-Langford after securing the party’s nomination.

Born in Nelson and raised in the Okanagan and Victoria, DeLong now resides on Thetis Island with her husband and two dogs. She is a former four-term Alberta MLA, who served her constituents in Calgary during a 14-year period.

DeLong chaired the Alberta delegation at the Pacific Northwest Economic Region, ultimately becoming the organization’s vice-president. She believes financial responsibility in government benefits all citizens.

“I am running because the current federal Liberal government is doing irreparable damage to our country and our children’s future,” noted DeLong. “Now is the time to stop the damage and get back to building up, not breaking down what makes Canada great. Now is the time for all of us to get out and work towards a better Conservative government for our country.”

DeLong cites her track record as Conservative legislator who gets things done.

“The residents of Cowichan-Malahat-Langford deserve an experienced, dedicated voice that can deliver their concerns to the next government in Ottawa, and work toward solutions that make sense for our district,” she explained. “My background as a devoted constituency-first representative and my strong connections will help give our district, our Island, and all of British Columbia a solid voice in a Conservative federal government.”
