( if you want to be a BC liberal candidate its apparently as easy as going online and applying )


B.C. Liberal party recruiting candidates online


The party says women, millennials, and B.C’s diverse communities are still under-represented in the legislature.

It’s common to see police or firefighters launch recruitment drives online, but political parties?

For the first time, the B.C. Liberals are embarking on a recruiting drive for potential candidates from around B.C.

Beginning Wednesday, those who want to be considered as a Liberal candidate can apply online at readytorunbc.ca.

The party said, in a news release Wednesday, that women, millennials and B.C’s diverse communities are still under-represented in the legislature. They’re targeting those who may have considered running for office but didn’t know how to get involved.

B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson said they’re looking for individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life.

“Every political party including ours can, and must, do a better job at embracing diversity through merit — especially encouraging millennials, women and under-represented communities to compete for nominations and run as proud B.C. Liberals in the next election, whenever that may be,” he said in a statement.

The move comes days after Wilkinson revealed that at least three members of his caucus have signalled they won’t be running in the next provincial election. It’s unknown which members are going to leave before the next election in 2021.

Longtime MLA Mike de Jong told Postmedia News that rumours of his imminent departure were “greatly exaggerated.”

University of the Fraser Valley political scientist Hamish Telford said it’s not surprising some MLAs have already decided not to run.

Telford said there appears to be consensus within the party that there is room for some fresh faces, including more women and minority candidates.

Several issues have plagued the Liberals after they lost the 2017 election, including the spending scandal at the legislature, inaction on money laundering and ICBC’s financial woes.

B.C. Liberal party launches online candidate recruitment drive

The B.C. Liberal party is searching for new candidates using a website to recruit political hopefuls, including those from under-represented parts of the population in the legislature.

Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson said last week the party was shifting into a period of renewal after losing the Nanaimo byelection.

He said at least three members of the Liberal caucus will be announcing they won’t be running in the next provincial election.

Wilkinson says in a news release on Wednesday that the party is looking for people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

The party says it will be focusing its nomination efforts in ridings that aren’t held by the Liberals, although it already has more than 87 interested potential candidates in every region in the province.
