He has spearheaded the petition campaign to restrict house sizes on farmland, the petition to approve the Acute Care Tower at Richmond Hospital, the petition calling on the BC government to initiate an independent public inquiry into money laundering, drug trafficking, and profiteering in our real estate economy. He has worked tirelessly advocating for adequate funding for our public education system, to name but a few. Jack has advocated on behalf of our community at all three levels of government and is ready to deliver positive change for Steveston-Richmond East.
As our next MP, he'll work alongside Jagmeet Singh to invest in healthcare, small business, and green infrastructure while creating quality jobs for Canadians as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jack is committed to advocating on behalf of the constituents of Steveston-Richmond East for a fairer, greener, more just society that makes life a little easier for working Canadians and that is focused on a hopeful vision for a better tomorrow. And, he will do so by constantly challenging the status quo of our current economic, social, and political policies and by establishing new ones that serve the common good of all Canadians.
Jack holds a Bachelor of Arts from SFU, a Bachelor of Education from the UBC, and a Master of Education from SFU. He has been honoured with several academic and professional accolades and is the 2002/2003 national recipient of the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence.
Jack Trovato hails from Argentina, having immigrated to Canada with his family as a small child. He grew up in Richmond and raised his daughter here. A proud Richmond resident for over 40 years, Jack holds a deep appreciation for our community's rich cultural diversity. Jack has spent much of his life fighting for better public education and empowering his students to be their best. Now he's ready to take the next step for our community—as a strong voice for our priorities in Parliament.
Reason for running
As your next MP, I'll work alongside Jagmeet Singh and the NDP caucus to invest in healthcare, small business, and green infrastructure while creating quality jobs for Canadians as we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
I am committed to advocating on behalf of the constituents of Steveston-Richmond East for a fairer, greener, more just society that makes life a little easier for working Canadians and that is focused on a hopeful vision for a better tomorrow.

These are challenging times for a lot of people. Many Canadians are struggling. We are anxious about our jobs, taking care of our families, and the health of the people we love. At the same time, the ultra-rich are making record profits off this pandemic. Canadian billionaires are $37 billion richer since March. They're doing just fine, but we need someone in Ottawa fighting for working people and helping us get through this pandemic.
Jagmeet Singh and the NDP caucus get what Canadians are facing – he's fighting for working people, not the super-rich – and he's getting results. The NDP is getting more people, more help faster. We have advocated throughout the pandemic for a 75% wage subsidy, paid sick days, an extension of the CERB, rental assistance for small businesses, supports for seniors and people living with disabilities.
New Democrats are here to get things done. And we'll keep delivering for people. We need to invest in better health care, jobs, affordable housing, and real progress against the climate crisis. And, it's time for those who are making big money off this pandemic to pay their fair share.
Vote NDP this time. That's how we can get more done for you.
