BC Conservative leader committed to moving the needle to the right

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

The BC Conservative Party selected their new leader over the weekend. Former leader Dan Brooks won in a close vote and will be given a second chance to move the needle for the party in the next election.

Many conservative British Columbians default to the BC Liberals due to the fear of vote splitting that could lead to an NDP victory but the BC Conservatives might change that next election with their commitment to being more strategic and selective about where to run candidates.

This, combined with more thorough candidate vetting, is good news for British Columbians who want more than two parties to choose from.

I will reserve my vote until I hear more from Dan Brooks…. If he doesn’t have a clear visions and just spouts platitudes, then B.C. is no better than under Christy Clark… I don’t want more “Ottawaspeak” and generalities and empty sound bites… Let’s hear about where he stands on the Site C dam, LNG export terminals, Kinder-Morgan pipeline twinning, softwood export agreements, uncapping Ft. St. John gas wells, fish farming, and Oriental money laundering via real estate in Vancouver… And how about less money for bike lanes in Vancouver and more money for doctors outside of the Lower Mainland?…

Maybe just take the label “conservative” from your party name. Seems to work for Brad Wall. It is almost like the term “conservative” is equal to “demon” in the minds of so many Canadians.

The mistake us conservatives make is to run and win with a strong conservative mandate. Then once we’re elected we feel pulled to the left for fear of losing votes next election go round. So we become liberal.
Forgetting that we won with a conservative point of view and mandate.
Stephen H comes to mind. The socialists saw him as a right wing demon of sorts when he acted (became) more liberal than any conservative leader I remember. Except Mulroney, I suppose.
Some might disagree but my advice; for what it’s worth, If you win as a Conservative, then lead as a Conservative. Period.
