Video & questionnaire: Aeriol Alderking – Christian Heritage Party candidate in Abbotsford

Aeriol Alderking is the Christian Heritage Party candidate in Abbotsford

Aeriol Alderking, the Christian Heritage Party candidate in the Abbotsford riding, sat down with The News for an interview Wednesday.

We asked her about abortion, her party’s “fair tax” proposal, and climate change.

She also responded to a written questionnaire about his priorities and suitability for office. Find both below. For information on the boundary of the major local ridings, and information on other local candidates, click here.

*The video includes a discussion about the size of the Canadian Revenue Agency and tax preparation sector. The News has since confirmed that the CRA’s annual budget is about $5 billion annually. Figures on the Canadian tax preparation sector are difficult to obtain, but Accounting Today estimated the global tax advisory market to be $20 billion, of which the U.S. accounted for $3.8 billion.

1. Why are you personally running to be a member of Parliament?

As a social activist, I’ve seen many abuses that the Liberals and Conservatives refuse to even discuss. There is still no law whatever to regulate abortion—even to the moment of birth; and last year 151 babies were born alive and left to die—infanticide! There are two people in the Liberal cabinet promoting sharia. I don’t want to see sharia in Canada. There are imams in Canada (and elsewhere) proclaiming fatwas against Canadians—death threats; that’s a crime, but it’s not being prosecuted. I want to protect legitimate refugees, like the Ogunkoya family; whose deportation means certain death!

2. What skills and attributes do you have that would make you a good elected representative for your constituents?

30 years of experience as an advocate for the oppressed; a passion for justice; established connections with minority groups here in Abbotsford; and a capacity for thinking outside the box; I’m a fiscal conservative, serve on a seniors’ board and have environmental experience through the Fraser Valley Conservancy.

3. What are the two biggest issues for your constituents in Abbotsford and how will you and/or your party address them?

• Making immigration easier for legitimate immigrants; clearing the backlog and keeping families together.

• Controlling government waste, and the soaring debt that is stealing from the earnings of our children and grandchildren to buy votes today.
