JOHN MARTIN AND LAURIE THRONESS NOMINATED IN CHILLIWACK AND CHILLIWACK-HOPE
October 23, 2012
Chilliwack – Laurie Throness and John Martin, former political opponents and now allies, will both be acclaimed as candidates for the BC Liberal Party at a joint meeting in Chilliwack tomorrow night.
John Martin, the BC Liberal Party’s new candidate in Chilliwack, ran for the BC Conservatives against Throness in the Chilliwack-Hope by-election this past April. In September, Martin left the BC Conservatives and joined the BC Liberal Party.
“What we learned from the by-election was that when the free enterprise option is split, the NDP win,” said Martin. “That is why I’m so happy to be working with Laurie Throness here in Chilliwack and running for the BC Liberals.”
Laurie Throness, the BC Liberal candidate and second place finisher in the Chilliwack-Hope by-election in April, is running again to win back the Chilliwack-Hope seat for the BC Liberals.
“John Martin’s decision to join our Party created a lot of positive grassroots momentum,” said Throness. “For a lot of people, it really cemented the fact that the BC Liberals are the only viable option for supporters of free enterprise in B.C.”
