“I am running for VOTE Socialist because I believe that together we can build a different society, with a different way of relating to all people, where all levels of government strive to meet the needs of everyone, not just property owners and investors,” said Dr. Zeidler, who has been a family doctor in East Vancouver for the last 8 years after having graduated from UBC School of Medicine.
