Six new candidates joining Wilkinson and renewed BC Liberal team

THE B.C. Liberals said on Friday that less than a week after the NDP’s John Horgan called a risky pandemic snap election, they are welcoming six more candidates to B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson’s growing team, prepared to offer British Columbians a real choice in this election — one that will restore confidence and rebuild BC.

The six newest candidates:

  • Respected cardiologist and Vancouver Academy of Music chair Dr. Raymond Dong in Burnaby North
  • Construction site superintendent Jon Ellacott in Vancouver-West End
  • Restaurant owner and Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce president Tanya Finley in Nelson-Creston
  • Greater Vancouver Bangladesh Cultural Association past president Tariq Malik in Burnaby-Lougheed
  • Haida hereditary chief and National Coalition of Chiefs executive member Chief Roy Jones Jr. in North Coast
  • Public affairs consultant RJ Senko in Esquimalt-Metchosin

“More than ever BC needs a competent, compassionate, responsible government that will lead our province to economic recovery,” said Wilkinson. “Our renewed BC Liberal team has a clear vision and is up to the challenge — it’s time to move away from a government that only looks out for itself and choose a future that restores confidence and rebuilds BC.”
