Alex Atamanenko, MP (BC Southern Interior) is encouraging Peter Julien MP for Burnaby New Westminster, to run for the federal NDP leadership.

“I have worked with Peter for the past five years and feel that he is more than qualified to lead our Party. Although he is from British Columbia, he has lived in Quebec and other parts of Canada and has a distinct vision for our country.  He would make an excellent Prime Minister,” stated Atamanenko.

According to Atamanenko, Peter Julien understands the issues around Canadian sovereignty, especially when it concerns trade and the farming sector.


“I am pleased to join my colleagues, Kennedy Stewart, Brian Masse, Rathika Sitsabaiesan and Isabelle Morin in our endorsement of Peter”, concluded the B.C. MP.
