January 22, 2024

KITIMAT, B.C. – Today, it was announced that Ellis Ross, MLA for Skeena, will run federally, and affirmed his steadfast support for Kevin Falcon and BC United.

“My whole career has been about standing up for the people of Skeena,” said Ross. “I’ve been fighting for better jobs and safer streets, and I’ve been advocating for B.C.’s resource sector when others only apologized for it. As a Member of Parliament, I’m going to bring that same fight to Ottawa.”

“As an MLA with BC United, it was an honour to stand up for Skeena and British Columbians, and I will continue that fight because after seven years of the NDP, everything is worse,” Ross added. “Only Kevin Falcon and BC United can defeat the NDP and fix British Columbia. Kevin Falcon has my unwavering support, and I will fight tooth and nail to make sure BC United wins the election in October.”

Ellis Ross was first elected to Skeena in 2017 and was re-elected in 2020. He currently serves as Shadow Minister for Energy and LNG. He previously served as Chief Councillor of the Haisla Nation and was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal in 2013 and the Order of B.C. in 2014.

“Ellis Ross has been a tireless, principled advocate for his constituents and for B.C.’s natural resources – and I am grateful for his outstanding service,” said Kevin Falcon, Leader of BC United. “I know Ellis is committed to our party’s success in the next election, and I look forward to working with him on our shared priorities when he becomes a Member of Parliament.”

Ross will continue to serve as the BC United MLA for Skeena until the next provincial election.

Under Kevin Falcon’s leadership, BC United continues to build a strong, election-ready team with excellent candidates being nominated in every corner of the province.
