Get to Know Jon

Jon Coleman, an influential figure at the intersection of Indigenous rights, construction, and community advocacy in the Cowichan Valley. As a proud member of the Cowichan Tribes and the owner of Jon-Co Contracting, Jon has emerged as a formidable leader, dedicated to challenging systemic barriers that impact both his community and workers at large.

Last fall, Jon found himself temporarily locked out of contributing to the Cowichan District Hospital Replacement Project due to its designation as a CBA project. Undeterred, he spoke out against the exclusionary impacts of ideologically driven CBAs, implemented under the current NDP government, passionately declaring, “It’s not fair, it’s not right, and I will not be stepped on anymore. I will keep coming back here until we have paperwork that states where we stand.”

With first-hand experience of the challenges posed by ill-conceived and poorly structured CBAs, Jon emphasizes the negative repercussions of such agreements on workers, particularly on Indigenous workers, whom these agreements claim to uplift.

Currently residing in Duncan, Jon is not just a business owner but a family man deeply ingrained in his community. As the primary caregiver for his sisters’ children in care and a father and grandfather himself, Jon, alongside his partner, intimately understand the challenges faced by local families in the Cowichan Valley. His perspective, shaped by both personal and professional experiences, positions him as an unwavering advocate for the community’s well-being.

 

“Jon Coleman’s unwavering commitment to breaking down barriers and advocating for his community makes him the ideal candidate for the Cowichan Valley. His experience, particularly in challenging the exclusionary impacts of CBAs, aligns perfectly with BC United’s mission to address critical issues facing everyday British Columbians. I know Jon will be a strong voice, fighting to fix our province for this generation, and the next.”
– Kevin Falcon, Leader of BC United

“I am honoured to represent BC United in the Cowichan Valley. United, under the leadership of Kevin Falcon, I know we can fix the critical issues facing our community, like the rising cost-of-living, lack of affordable housing, a healthcare system in crisis, and rising crime. I’m determined, under the BC United banner, to fight for a better British Columbia for all.”
– Jon Coleman, BC United Candidate for Cowichan Valley
