Former mountie Kurt Peats running for Tories in South Peace

In a message on his campaign site posted Wednesday, Jackson said he was "not at liberty" to explain his withdrawal from yesterday's vote, but that the timing was out of his control.

Peats previously served as detachment commander for the Tumbler Ridge RCMP and handled traffic services for both the north and south Peace.
The official candidate selection meeting was held in Dawson Creek last night, with B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins in attendance. So far, it's known Peats will be running against B.C. Liberal Party candidate Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier for MLA.
