Duncan running for People’s Party in Abbotsford

Candidate one of six running to represent riding in Parliament

Locke Duncan is the People’s Party of Canada candidate in the Abbotsford riding in the upcoming federal election.

Duncan is an electrician, whose online bio says he has worked on “many large projects” throughout Western Canada.

A father of three, Duncan’s website says he was brought up in a military family and enjoys sports, fishing, golfing and off-road motrocycling.

“My nature is of a conservative mindset and a motto of live-and-let-live, allowing everyone their choices that are not an impediment to someone else’s,” his bio says.

The People’s Party was created by MP Maxime Bernier after he left the Conservatives.

Duncan has not previously run for office.

The Abbotsford riding encompasses most of the city south of Maclure and Bateman roads. (Matsqui Prairie and areas north of those roads are in the Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding.)

Duncan will face incumbent Ed Fast, the NDP’s Madeleine Sauve, Liberal Seamus Heffernan, Aeriol Alderking of the Christian Heritage Party, and Stephen Fowler of the Green Party.
