Nelly Shin of Vancouver KCBMC elected to the Canadian House of Representatives

In the Canadian general election on October 21, Nelly Shin (conservative-photographed) a member of Vancouver KCBMC, was elected to the  BC (British Columbia) Port Moody-Coquitlam constituency.   As a federal Conservatives’ parachute candidate, Nelly captured the riding of Port Moody-Coquitlam, winning the seat formerly occupied by NDP (New Democrat Party) MP Fin Donnelly in what was a tight three-way race.  Nelly won a total of 16,588 votes (31.3%), by the margin of only 333 votes, beating out other two candidates.

In 1977, Nelly immigrated to Toronto when she was 5 years old, studied music composition at the University of Toronto, graduated from the Graduate School of Education, and served seven years as a high school music teacher.

Since then, she served as a missionary and decided to advance to politics to help the lives of alienated and indigenous people.

Shin originally prepared to run in Richmond Hill, Ontario, but following a change in the Conservatives’ electoral strategy, chose a winning run in Port Moody-Coquitlam, BC, bringing pride to the Korean immigrants everywhere.

Nelly’s mother is Sook-hee Shin, the chairwoman of the Canadian Korean Immigration Commission.
