FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Despite previously endorsing Ellis Ross for party leader, MLA Dan Davies says the BC Liberal Party is in good hands with Kevin Falcon.
“At the end of the day, we’re all on the same team. Kevin’s a fantastic guy, I’ve met him a number of times over the years, he’s incredibly capable.” Davies said.
He adds that Falcon has the knowledge and the vision.
“We’ll be able to move along and fight this election coming up in 2024.”
Davies says with a leader at the helm, the BC Liberals can start tracking the party’s progression and perform as a strong, unified opposition.
“Opportunity isn’t available to British Columbians right now, and we need to change that. Kevin is the guy that I think can get us there.”
“Another thing that Kevin has said over and over again is, when he was in government and when we were in government, we did big things, we built big things. We got big projects done. We haven’t seen that in five years,” Davies said.
Moving forward in the northeast, Davies says the party wants to see a robust resource sector.
“If we’re going to see us funding all the things that we want as British Columbians: good education, good healthcare, we want our roads maintained, if we want to continue to see that stuff, we need a robust resource sector. It cannot be done solely on tax base alone,” Davies said.
Davies will hold onto his role as critic for Social Development and Poverty Reduction in the BC Liberal Caucus.
