North Vancouver's Mike Little will represent the Conservatives in the new riding of Burnaby North-Seymour in the next federal election.

Little, a three-term councillor for North Vancouver District, was announced as the party's candidate in a press release Monday.

“We are thrilled to have Mike as our candidate," said Burnaby North-Seymour Electoral District Association president Ariane Eckardt. "Mike brings a tremendous amount of experience to this position and he will make a great Member of Parliament.”

Little was first elected as councillor in 2005 and has focused on accessibility issues for seniors and persons with disabilities. He has also served as the liaison to North Shore Rescue and the North Shore Emergency Management Office.

When not serving on council, he works for his family business exporting finished B.C. lumber to China, Korea, and Japan. He has lived in the riding all his life and is married with four children.

The next federal election will take place in October 2015 or earlier. Terry Beech has been chosen as the Liberal candidate, while the New Democrats have two people who have declared plans to run for that party's nomination, Trevor Ritchie and Michael Charrois.

“The NDP, Liberals and Conservatives can all win this seat," said Little in the release. "I will work hard to earn every vote.”
