Julian has held down the riding for a long time.
He was barely elected back in 2004, escaping with a close-call victory of just a few hundred votes.
Since then, Julian has been untouchable in the riding, easily cruising to double-digit victories.
The Georgia Straight has referred to Julian as “”one of the region’s hardest working politicians”.
And in addition to his work in Ottawa, Julian has long been very active at the local level.
According to Wikipedia: He co-founded the Save St. Mary’s Hospital Community Coalition. He was a founding member of the B.C. Disability Employment Network and the Burnaby-New Westminster Council of Canadians. He has also volunteered for the local Emergency Social Services, for Royal City Soccer, East Burnaby Minor Baseball, the United Way, and the United Church of Canada.
