Todd Doherty (Conservative Party)

I am humbly seeking re-election for a second term to serve friends and families in the region and bring vast experience in the private sector to my role as MP.

As an aviation executive, I was tasked with promoting regional, provincial and national passenger, cargo and tourism opportunities on the world stage.

In addition, I have authored and co-authored industry papers on regulatory challenges affecting air service development in the Canadian passenger and cargo markets.

I was honoured to be reappointed as the Shadow Minister for Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, in addition to be reappointed as Shadow Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway. I am also the Chair of the National Softwood Lumber Caucus and have held the position as Deputy Critic for Indigenous Affairs. I was privileged to

champion Bill C-211, An Act Respecting a Federal Framework on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Involvement in local community is also important to me. I support the local Canadian Cancer Society and various charitable organizations and have worked with at-risk youth, teaching crisis intervention and suicide prevention in cross-cultural communities. I am passionate about coaching and mentoring youth through sports. Having coached all

levels of hockey from minor to junior, I have been part of the Prince George Spruce Kings Junior

A hockey team from scouting to president, and a proud member of the Cariboo Cougars alumni.

My wife, Kelly, and I have been successful small business owners for over 20 years and have four children — Joshua, Kaitlyn, Kassi and Jordan.
