Fred Harding

Mayoral Candidate

Fred Harding has been a leader throughout his career life, including during his distinguished 30-plus years in the police service. He is passionate about making Vancouver safe, affordable and stable.

Fred was born in Manchester England and worked as a detective with the Metropolitan Police Service of London, from 1984 to 1997 before moving to Vancouver to raise his children.

Fred had a high-profile career as a member of the West Vancouver Police department and is the proud recipient of commendations from the Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police, The Commissioner of the Canadian RCMP, and the Chief Constables. He is also the recipient of British Columbia’s highest award for valour.

During his policing career, Fred worked on many high-profile cases in both the UK and Canada, including the Robert Pickton case. During that investigation, Fred was greatly moved by the pain and sadness he witnessed firsthand among Vancouver’s most vulnerable. That experience continues to drive his passion for helping the city’s most vulnerable and making Vancouver safer.

Since his policing career ended Fred has been president and CEO of Harding Global Consultants Ltd (HGC), a Vancouver-based consulting company looking to bridge the business gap between North America and Asia. In this role, Fred has excelled in helping businesses grow and innovate.

Fred Harding is running for Mayor of Vancouver to bring Leadership back to City Hall. His leadership abilities and ability to make tough decisions are what Vancouver needs to restore safety, affordability and stability.

Fred is proudly running with the NPA, the party that built Vancouver and has always delivered a stable government.

This October 15th you can send Fred to city hall with a great team of NPA candidates who will restore safety, affordability and stability to our city government.

We all agree it is time for change at city hall.  What Kennedy Stewart and his government have done to this city is a tragedy.

This is a pivotal moment in our history.

I look forward to restoring safety and bringing the leadership we need along with my great team of council candidates.

I’m appealing to you this election not to vote from an ideological perspective, either from the right or the left. But instead, vote with your conscience –

Vote for the leader you believe is going to lean in and fight for you and your safety with boldness and compassion.

A Real Plan

Our city is no longer safe.

What is going on on our city streets is neither compassion nor compassionate.

To think harm reduction and slum housing alone are helping those in need in our society – is a lie.

When I look around I am so saddened at what is going on in this city we love.

Our city needs leadership.

Things are so bad our public safety crisis is no longer isolated to the Downtown Eastside.

We are all affected now, from UBC to Boundary road.

And we have seen a rise in violent crimes against innocent victims.

It is time for leadership.

Your safety will be our priority.
