I hope the BC Conservative Party and a highly qualified Independent also run, giving everyone a real choice.

Glad to see Johnny Boy didn't run out the clock on setting the by-election date!

I can see leaving out the Green Party candidate as they are a fringe party not really being worthy of mention anyway.

Go Ben Stewart! Time to get to Victoria and end the reign of evil usurper Horgan!

Couldn't the Liberals have found someone with a backbone who wants to serve the people of Kelowna West and not just their party?

My bad. I thought it would be in the BC news. Didn't look in the West Kelowna news. Thanks for the link.

Why would you run for the BC Liberal Party if you didn't agree with the party's policies? I think you actually understand how the party system works. Do you see any NDP MLA's who oppose Horgan's decision on Site C quitting the caucus? Do they lack backbone or is that somehow different? LOL.

Hopefully the voters in Kelowna West will listen to each candidate, then vote for the one they feel will do the best job for everyone in the riding.

Throw out the BS my parents voted for "X" party so I'm voting for that same party.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

There is also the process of trying to determine which, if any candidate is telling the truth.
If beer is not the answer.
You are asking the wrong question.
