BC Conservative leadership hopeful drops out of race ahead of weekend contest

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

The next BC Conservative leader will be chosen on the weekend – but sadly one of the candidates will be left off the ballot.

Chloe Ellis has dropped out of the race after a close family member was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. In her statement, she endorsed Konrad Pimiskern who she feels is the next best candidate in the race.

On behalf of everyone at Rebel Media our thoughts are with Chloe and her family.

Watch as I report the details along with comments from Pimiskern who applauds the party’s decision to embrace a policy of running in ridings where they won’t split the vote.

The leadership convention takes place this weekend in Prince George so stay tuned for the results which I’ll be sure to report.

It is interesting that the Liberal party seems determined to not get the opinions of the white males when that party has more white males than any other party in Canada.

Damn!…. There goes the best of the bunch….

If they had a native, transgendered Muslim convert junkie it would be better optics in the degenerate BC political pool.

Oh well, best wishes to her.

That leaves three un-heard of political wannabes, trying to lead an irrelevant party in a polarised province.

May 2017 will be another tight race between the centre right BC Liberals and the centre left NDP. The Greens will steal votes from the NDP towards the BC Liberals. The Conservatives will just steal votes from the BC Liberals in favour of the NDP.
