Pints & Politics at the Riptide

This is an ideal session for our riding's small business owners and tourism stakeholders.

Come meet Blake Richards (Conservative Shadow Minister for Small Business, Tourism and Export Promotion) and Shelley Downey, our North Island—Powell River Conservative candidate to discuss issues and challenges facing this integral part of our riding.

Don't be shy, bring a friend or three for this meeting! Discussion is sure to be lively.


First elected in 2008, Blake Richards was re-elected for a third time in the new riding of Banff-Airdrie on October 19, 2015.

Blake serves as the Official Opposition Shadow Minister for Small Business, Tourism and Export Promotion.

While serving on the government side of the House of Commons, Blake chaired two standing policy committees and was Chair of the Parliamentary Tourism Caucus. He also frequently represented the government in regional and national media.

Always focused on the needs of his constituents, Blake has three times been named Canada’s Best Constituency MP as well as Hardest Working MP, and in 2015 received a Canadian Tourism Award for his work in Parliament on behalf of the tourism industry.
