Working for Kootenay West
Katrine Conroy was first elected as a BC NDP MLA in 2005 and brought a wealth of experience to the official opposition.
Katrine has enjoyed careers as one of B.C.’s first female power engineers, an early childhood educator, administrator and college instructor and a small business person. Together, Katrine and her husband run a Purebred cattle Business. They have 4 children and 9 grandchildren.
Katrine was previously executive director of Kootenay Family Place, an instructor at Selkirk College; co-chair of the Castlegar and District Social Planning Council, treasurer of the Regional District of Central Kootenay Community Futures Board and founding board member of the Community Social Services Employers Association.
Since being in public office, Katrine has been actively engaged and learning about the Columbia River Treaty Process. She participated in many CRT conferences, government meetings, and presentations. Katrine knows how important this treaty is for the Kootenay West constituency and the Columbia Basin region.
Spending 12 years elected at the legislature, Katrine knows that the interior of BC has gotten worse under Christy Clark’s government. We have seen a loss in rural jobs and interior economic development, a loss in services and an increase in rates and fees.
Christy Clark clearly isn’t there for the people in Kootenay West and it’s time for a change.
Katrine stands strongly behind John Horgan and electing an NDP government. While Christy Clark’s decisions are bought by corporate and foreign influence, a John Horgan BC NDP government will be in your corner – working for you.John's Story
