Regina Lawyer Noah Evanchuk to seek NDP nomination in Palliser August 7, 2009
With a call for a Parliament that addresses the real needs of all citizens, Regina lawyer Noah Evanchuk announced his intention to seek the New Democratic Party nomination in the Palliser constituency. While acknowledging that the present Conservative MP, Ray Boughen, is a decent person who loves his country, Evanchuk decried the way that Boughen and other Conservative MPs have no voice to speak for their constituents.
“The voters of Palliser deserve a Member of Parliament who will serve them, instead of serving the Prime Minister’s backroom spin doctors,” said Evanchuk. “In Stephen Harper’s Canada, Conservative MPs are muzzled and unelected PMO appointees rule the day.”
Evanchuk pointed to Conservative inaction on childcare as one of the many examples where Conservative MPs have place party interests over representing the needs of their constituents.
“Instead of addressing the bread and butter issues that matter to Canadians – issues like affordable childcare, skyrocketing housing prices, economic instability and a government awash in debt – Ottawa Conservatives are engaged in the lowest of partisan mudslinging and scapegoating the most vulnerable citizens.”
Evanchuk, who practices criminal law and employment law in Regina, is involved in a range of community and volunteer activities, including the Salvation Army free legal clinic and coaching football with Ranch Ehrlo’s Monday Night Football program for inner-city youth. He was recently appointed to the board of the Canadian Mental Health Association (Saskatchewan Division).
Born in Kingston, Ontario, where his father was stationed with the Canadian Forces, Evanchuk grew up in Saskatchewan and Alberta. He and his wife, Anna-Marie Kowalsky, live in Palliser riding in Regina where they are raising their daughter.
Palliser, which was held by NDP MP Dick Proctor until 2004, is one of the New Democrats’ best prospects to gain a seat in Saskatchewan. It was the NDP’s second best result in Saskatchewan, in the 2008 election, after Saskatoon–Rosetown–Biggar.
