RUNNING IN THE FAMILY

CAMPBELL RIVER – Last night Darren Blaney was elected Chief of Homalco First Nation. Married to local Member of Parliament Rachel Blaney, Darren is excited to get to work on the major issues of his community.

“The focus for me will be on economic development, accountability and building relationships with the broader community of Campbell River,” said Chief Darren Blaney.

19-year-old Henry Blaney, son of MP Blaney and Chief Blaney also ran but was unsuccessful in his first bid to join his nation’s council.

“I guess you could say I’ve been raised on the values of community service,” said Henry Blaney. “Both of my parents are dedicated to strengthening our communities and I have been inspired by their commitment.”

MP Blaney expressed her pride in her family. “When Henry decided to put his name forward I was very impressed. He is young but focused and I think it is important for young people to participate.”

MP Blaney has been in contact with Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson to inform her of her husband’s new role. “Ms. Dawson had no concerns and will work with me to keep things transparent.”

“As Member of Parliament, I will continue to work with each of the more-than-20 First Nations, 11 municipalities, and all of the many amazing communities across this riding. But as a wife and mother, today I’m just proud of my family.”
