Former Prince Rupert mayor Herb Pond will take on incumbent NDP MLA Jennifer Rice for the North Coast riding after winning the B.C. Liberal nomination this afternoon.

B.C. Liberals have not released the vote count.

North Coast B.C. Liberal release:

“Former Rupert mayor, Lax Kw’alaams band administrator, and community advocate Herb Pond has been selected by local party members as the BC Liberal candidate for North Coast in the upcoming BC election.

“Our communities and our region are full of potential – but for that potential to be realized, we need an MLA who will work hard to deliver opportunity,” Pond said. “I’m excited to offer North Coast voters a choice that will work passionately for economic development that creates jobs and opportunity while respecting our environment.”

Pond served two terms as Prince Rupert mayor, worked as a community relations advisor for LNG proponent BG Canada, and has been an active community volunteer with Prince Rupert groups including Rotary, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Economic Development Commission. He was honoured to be adopted into the Eagle Clan of Lax Kw’alaams. He and his wife Sandy have proudly raised their daughter and three sons on the North Coast.

On behalf of Today’s BC Liberals, I’d like to thank all the members who came out to vote today at our candidate selection meeting. Now, the hard work of electing a strong voice for this riding begins, and we’re counting on your support.”
