VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. Liberal Party has announced an interim leader, following Andrew Wilkinson’s resignation after the 2020 Provincial General Election.
Elected as the new B.C. Liberal leader is Prince George-Valemount MLA Shirley Bond.
Bond says she appreciates the confidence from her colleagues for being elected as interim leader and thanks Wilkinson for his service as party leader.
“I appreciate the confidence and trust my colleagues have placed in me as we work together to hold John Horgan and the NDP government to account in the coming months. I want to thank Andrew Wilkinson for his service as leader over the past several years and I look forward to continuing to work with him and our entire team of new and returning MLAs to present a positive vision for this province.”
As interim leader, Bond says she will work hard to hold Horgan and his government to account until a new B.C. Liberal leader is elected.
In addition to electing an interim leader, the party also appointed Stephanie Cadieux as their new Caucus Chair.
The B.C. Liberal MLAs will be officially sworn in on November 27, and the B.C. Legislature is currently scheduled to return for a brief legislative session starting on December 7.
