Sean Robson is the Libertarian Party of B.C. candidate in Prince George-Valemount.
He is a 37-year-old single father. He was born in Surrey, British Columbia, and moved to Prince George when he was 10 years old. He works in the logging industry and became interested in politics during the 2008 recession after leaving the military.
“I found the economic opportunity in the region to be greatly diminished and the response from all levels of government to be less than satisfactory,” he said on his campaign page. “Seeing the policy of huge wealth transfers fail the region and many areas of Canada, I set out to learn all I could about the financial and economic responsibilities of government. Through my unofficial education I came to the conclusion that governments themselves were the main driver of poor economic opportunity across international jurisdiction and that the interventions while implemented with good intentions were the cause of the most heartache and stress in my community and across the world.”
The BC Libertarian Party was founded in 1986 advocating for individual liberty, lower taxes, free markets, and social tolerance.
British Columbians go to the polls October 24. Robson is running against incumbent Liberal Shirley Bond, NDP candidate Laura Parent, and Green Party candidate Mackenzie Kerr.
