Moniz brings a wealth of health-care system experience to the local political arena.

“Dr. David Moniz’s extensive experience and dedication to improving health care make him an exceptional candidate for Chilliwack North,” said BC United Leader Kevin Falcon in a news release Monday (April 15) . “At a time when British Columbia is facing a severe crisis in our health care system, with Canada’s longest walk-in clinic wait times and chaos in our cancer care system, Dr. Moniz’s leadership and expertise will be invaluable in bringing tangible solutions and real change to the entire system.”

Moniz practises at Chilliwack General Hospital, specializing in emergency medicine, anesthesia, and family practice.

Throughout his career the candidate has demonstrated a commitment to patient care, holding leadership positions such as acting director of medical aervices and board chair of the Remote Vocational Training Scheme.

For his part, Moniz has been a strong advocate for patient-centred care.

“I am honoured to have the opportunity to bring my experience as physician to politics by representing BC United in the upcoming provincial election,” said BC United Chilliwack North Candidate Dr. David Moniz. “My professional journey has been guided by a commitment to patient-centred care and advocating for policies that put patients, not bureaucrats, first.

“I am excited to bring my dedication for health care and our province to the political sphere, and I want the residents of Chilliwack North to know that I will be steadfast in representing their best interests each and every day.”

His candidacy underscores BC United’s commitment to putting forward candidates with “proven track records” of leadership and service to their communities as the provincial election approaches, Falcon said.

As BC United continues to prepare for the upcoming election, the party attracts high calibre candidates united by their commitment to champion policies prioritizing the well-being of all British Columbians and to build a better future for the next generation.
