‘We’re living in a powerful moment’: Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach reflects on his first year in office

During Taylor Bachrach’s 2018 mayoral campaign in Smithers, B.C., vandals drew a lurid image on the picture of his face on one of his signs. Instead of replacing the sign, Bachrach and his team printed a large sticker in the shape of a Band-Aid and used it to cover the profanity.

Bachrach’s approach to politics is similarly pragmatic. After three consecutive terms as mayor of Smithers, he decided to run for the NDP in the federal election when longtime NDP MP Nathan Cullen announced he was stepping down.
