Guest speaker will be provincial agriculture minister Norm Letnick

  • Sep. 21, 2012 10:00 a.m.

NEARLY 400 BC Liberal party members are eligible to vote Sept. 28 when they gather to choose a candidate for the May 2013 provincial election.

Voting opens that day at 4 pm and finishes at 8:30 pm at the Best Western Terrace Inn.

Two people are running – Carol Fielding and Carol Leclerc, both of Terrace.

At 7 pm we’ll be having a reception with our candidates speaking at 7:30 pm,” says Skeena Liberal constituency association president Donny van Dyk.

At 8:30 pm, after voting has concluded and while the count is going on, agriculture minister Norm Letnick will speak.

Van Dyk expects results to be ready by 9 pm.

Van Dyk was returned as president of the party’s constituency association when it held its annual general meeting July 28.

Gordon Stamp Vincent is the vice president.

The BC Liberals last held the Skeena riding when Roger Harris was elected in 2001. He was subsequently defeated by NDPer Robin Austin in 2005 and Austin was re-elected in the 2009 election.
