Qualtrough was officially announced as Delta’s Liberal candidate by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a summer barbecue in East Ladner on Sunday.

A formal nomination event will take place in Delta in the coming weeks.

“It continues to be an honour to serve the constituents of Delta,” said Qualtrough. “We have accomplished so much together in the past three years. This includes significant support to families through the Canada Child Benefit, better support for seniors through increases to the GIS and OAS programs and historic infrastructure investments. There is still much more to accomplish in the years ahead. That’s why I’m very much looking forward to continue earning your support into 2019.”

Phil Horan, chair of the federal Liberal riding association said Qualtrough has been a tireless advocate for the people of Delta.

“She is very approachable and listens to us,” said Horan. “Her contributions to government have been recognized through her increasing ministerial responsibilities. I am absolutely certain she will continue to serve Deltans well and make us all proud.”
