The fellow facing the camera appears to be the candidate and then-M.P. for the riding of Fraser Valley, West, Robert L. Wenman. He was first elected in that constituency in 1974 and was subsequently re-elected in 1979, 1980 (following the conclusion of Prime Minister Clark’s brief government and the resurrection of Trudeau to lead the Liberal Party back into power), 1984, and 1988. Before running as a federal candidate, he trained as a teacher in Saskatchewan (where he was born and raised) and was elected in 1966 (and re-elected in 1969) as a Social Credit MLA in BC’s legislature. He died in 1995, a relatively young man (54), after contracting a bacterial infection while on a business trip to Asia.
