Second Liberal Debate Focuses On Big Issues Facing Northern Region

 BC Liberal leadership candidate Dianne Watts repeatedly raised the issues she’s heard from families across northern BC during her two visits to the northern regions of the province since declaring her candidacy.

 PRINCE GEORGE – The second BC Liberal leadership debate was a good exchange of ideas about issues facing BC, in particular issues facing Prince George and communities from across the northern region.

BC Liberal leadership candidate Dianne Watts repeatedly raised the issues she’s heard from families across northern BC during her two visits to the northern regions of the province since declaring her candidacy.

“People from all corners of the province are talking about issues facing their families and communities. They want a new leader of the BC Liberal Party who can defeat the NDP-Green coalition. They need us to re-engage as a party and we need to start listening,” said Watts.

Watts continued to stress her strong opposition to what she calls “the biggest threat to our party and our province – proportional representation.”Watts called on all British Columbians to come together to defeat “this weak and indecisive form of government. If proportional representation passes, rural communities will lose their voice in Victoria and we will have more unstable minority governments, with the kind we are witnessing in BC right now.”

Watts continues her tour of northern British Columbia today as she travels to Peace River country for events in Dawson Creek and Fort St John where she will do an aerial tour of Site C, a project she strongly supports.
