Reason for running
Hi, my name is Mike Bhangu. I am running as an INDEPENDENT MLA Candidate in this Provincial Election, in the riding of FRASER-NICOLA.
The established political parties come and go, and our hardships continue to grow. A sense of hope is lost. This is why I stand as an Independent Candidate. Moreover, I can better represent my constituents without the trappings of a political party. I represent you and only you. And we’ve seen successful INDEPENDENT MLAs before such as Vicki Huntingdon (Delta South).

In Victoria I will fight for the family, those who suffer from mental health, small business, and the retiree.
• In this day and age, it’s very difficult to establish and maintain a family. For many, a family is out of reach. And for those who managed to create one, stability is constantly threatened.
• Too many retirees are struggling and it should not be this way. They gave their life to the system and they deserve better. Where are their Golden Years?
• Not enough is done to support small business. Unfortunately, the Liberals pushed them out and the NDP won’t take them in. Small business is being left behind. They struggle and they have for too long.
• Mental health is taking a toll on our communities. We must address this problem now. If we do not, what will our communities look like in 20 or 30 years? There is no more time to waste.
We are regressing and not progressing. Our communities require help and healing. I wish to go to Victoria and daily remind them about us and our struggles. I will be unyielding. I will make change. Elect Mike Bhangu, MLA, Fraser-Nicola.
