NEWS RELEASE · 10th November 2011

NDP federal leadership candidate and Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen is proud to welcome Skeena MLA Robin Austin to his team.

Austin will announce his endorsement of Cullen`s leadership bid for Canada's New Democrats at an event in Terrace on Friday.

“The truly outstanding attribute that Nathan brings to the leadership is his ability to communicate with people in such a way that he not only de-mystifies politics, but enables all who hear him to connect their own wishes, dreams and values to what is possible in this great country,” Austin said.

Austin will speak at an event that Cullen is hosting at the Kiva Cafe (Northwest Community College, Terrace) from 3 to 6pm on November 11. Everyone is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be available.

"One of the things I like best about British Columbia is it's so far away from Ottawa. And people are open to new ideas and new politics," said Cullen. "It's a privilege to have the support of leading British Columbians such as Robin, whom I've long respected and worked with well.

"New Democrats are proud of the historic steps we've taken together, and are ready for the next one. We can form a progressive government that reflects this country's values."

Come out Friday in Terrace to show Nathan your support, learn about the race, and visit with the Northwest`s future Prime Minister!
