Bremner named as BC Liberal candidate for New Westminster
The BC Liberals have confirmed small-business owner Hector Bremner will be the party's candidate in the New Westminster riding in the 2013 provincial election.
He had announced his intention to seek the party's nomination in October 2011. No others have come forward to challenge him so he will be acclaimed at the riding's nomination meeting Aug. 18 according to a party press release.
"New Westminster is a booming town that is filled with young families who are working hard to get ahead. These people want their government to maintain low taxes, controlled spending and economic stability," said Bremner in the release.
It said Bremner plans to make jobs, the economy and continued improvements to Royal Columbian Hospital a key part of his campaign.
Earlier this year the New Democrats proclaimed union leader Judy Darcy as its candidate replacing current MLA Dawn Black who is retiring after stints in both Ottawa as an MP and Victoria.
