They had already announced they would be seeking re-election and now their names are officially on the card.
Both incumbent MLAs Shirley Bond and Mike Morris have been acclaimed as 2017 BC Liberal candidates for the Prince George-Valemount and Prince George-Mackenzie ridings respectively. Bond has more than 15 years of Cabinet experience and says she looks forward to running again. “It has been an honour to represent the people of Prince George–Valemount since 2001,” she said. “But there is still more work to do, and that is why I am putting my name forward for a fifth term.”
Bond mentions she’s excited once again to be joined on the ballot with Morris. “We are determined to represent Northern BC with a strong voice in Victoria and to work hard on the priorities and issues that are important to rural British Columbia.”
Morris will be seeking re-election for his second term. “As an MLA, I have enjoyed working hard to represent my constituents and all areas of my riding,” he said. “I’m looking forward to continuing that work so that we can keep leading Canada in economic growth and job creation, and continue to put British Columbians first.”
Bond and Morris join 45 BC Liberal candidates already selected in ridings across the province. The BC Liberals estimate 75 per cent of its candidates will officially be nominated by its biennial convention November 4th to 6th in Vancouver.
British Columbians head to the polls May 9th, 2017.
