Conservatives pick Skeena riding candidate

A TERRACE small business owner has been named the BC Conservative Party's candidate for the Skeena riding in the upcoming May provincial election.

Mike Brousseau, who owns a roofing company, was the only declared candidate for the nomination. He was acclaimed at a meeting held last night.

Brousseau also ran for the provincial Conservative party in the 2009 provincial election.

While the election is still some months away, Brousseau said he's already been out knocking on doors.

I had been going out between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. but now with it getting lighter, I'll be out until 7 or 8 p.m.,” he said.

I enjoy talking to people,” said Brousseau.

So far, he said he's getting a good response from people who aren't happy with either the governing provincial Liberals or the official opposition New Democratic Party.
