There’s a leadership race going on that not many are talking about – it’s for the leader of the BC Conservative party.
The BC Conservative party is often disregarded because the BC Liberals are fairly conservative so at election time, people are more likely to vote liberal in hopes of keeping the NDP out, than considering a vote for the BC Conservative Party.
But I don’t think we should count the BC Conservative Party out especially if they elect the right leader. Doing so could get people excited about an alternative to the BC Liberal’s 15-year dynasty.
Last week, the four candidates vying for the job of BC Conservative leader held a debate.
Watch as I summarize the highlights from the two hour debate and share my thoughts about what was said and if you’re inclined towards watching the whole debate, you can see it by clicking HERE.
The debate was a great way to get to know some of these candidates and the issues they stand for even though near the end it devolved into the very kind of infighting that has defined the party for the past several years.
In the end, I hope all four candidates recognize the talent and skill that each of them can bring to the party under anyone’s leadership.
