BC Liberals announced on Thursday that they have officially opened the party’s nomination for Vancouver-Point Grey, encouraging prospective candidates to submit applications and begin the due diligence process for an election that could come at any time.
“Time and again, the current MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey has let down his constituents. On David Eby’s watch, the NDP government has wasted tax dollars on a failed referendum, jacked up taxes and ICBC rates, cut funding for transit, mental health, and education, and lost countless court cases at taxpayers’ expense,” said Jas Johal, BC Liberal MLA for Richmond-Queensborough and a member of the party’s election readiness committee. “While David Eby continues his audition to replace John Horgan as NDP leader, the BC Liberals will put forward a strong new candidate who will stand up for young families and all the hard-working residents of Vancouver-Point Grey.”
Prospective candidates may now submit a letter of intent to the party in order to receive an application package. The date of the candidate selection meeting will be determined in the coming weeks by the party’s election readiness committee, in consultation with the local riding association.
BC Liberal nominations are currently open in nine ridings, with more to come imminently. Candidate selection meetings are currently scheduled for Port Moody-Coquitlam on March 8, and Oak Bay-Gordon Head for April 4.
