Small business owner and first time candidate Paul Tarasenko will be running for the People’s Party of Canada in Delta in the federal election.
Born in Surrey in 1996, Tarasenko attended the French Immersion program at Burnsview Secondary in North Delta where he now lives. He then went on to graduate from Trinity Western University with distinction with his degree in general studies in the areas of education, history, and environmental science.
He says he is in the process of starting up a small logistics business and is a youth mentor at his church (West Lynn Baptist in North Vancouver) trying to instill the virtues of hard work, humility, steadfastness, and honesty.
“I have always loved politics at every level. This is the first time entering the political fields in terms of a candidate,” he said. “It’s a great experience. I want to encourage all young people to get involved in all levels of government regardless of their party affiliation. There are ideas that I like about the PPC, so let’s bring them to the table, let’s discuss them and see if we can all make a better Canada.”
Here in Delta he said he wants to fight for seniors and their living costs as well, he wants to encourage small businesses.
“With the PPC where they want to lower the corporate tax rates, that would help encourage and grow small business in our community,” he said. “I would like to see more transparency within our politicians. There is a lot of secrecy and a lot of infighting. I’m seeing a lot of disconnect and not looking out for their constituents, but instead, looking out for themselves.”
