Rob Morrison is a former RCMP officer

Rob Morrison of Cranbrook will be the Conservative party candidate for the Kootenay-Columbia riding in the 2019 federal election.

Morrison has lived in the region for 40 years and is a former RCMP officer who served as a senior manager of police service delivery models for B.C. He has spoken at international conferences about effective law enforcement targeting organized crime and national security threats.

He also served as director general of the Treasury Board Secretariat, where he was responsible for communication with law enforcement agencies and foreign governments.

In a news release Tuesday, Morrison said his priorities are “infrastructure (national park road enhancements), a planned immigration process with accountability, international trade (softwood lumber and mining), financial accountability, and the safety and security of Canadians.”

Current NDP MP Wayne Stetski recently announced that he will be seeking re-election in Kootenay-Columbia. Stetski won the 2015 federal election by 282 votes over David Wilks of the Conservatives.

Voting day is Oct. 21, 2019.
