LAKE AND STONE REPRESENTING THE BC LIBERALS IN KAMLOOPS AREA RIDINGS
August 14, 2012
Vancouver – The BC Liberal Party will be holding a joint nomination meeting in Kamloops tonight to formally introduce Environment Minister Terry Lake and small businessman Todd Stone as the party’s candidates in Kamloops-North and South Thompson respectively.
Terry Lake has been working hard for the people of Kamloops since first being elected in 2009. Lake has helped deliver $80 million in upgrades to the Royal Inland Hospital, a new dialysis unit for North Kamloops and $8 million for road upgrades in the region.
“Todd Stone and I want to make sure that the people of Kamloops see the progress that has been made in our community over the past few years. There is always room for improvement, but I’m proud of the major accomplishments that I have been able to help make happen for my community,” said Lake.
Todd Stone is excited about running to represent Kamloops-South Thompson in the upcoming election.
“Come election time, people are going to be thinking about who they want to manage our economy, and I think Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberals will be their answer,” said Stone.
“As a small businessman who has created a successful homegrown tech company here in Kamloops, I know how important it is to have a government that wants to keep B.C.’s economy strong,” said Stone.
“Small business people that I talk to are concerned about the future of their businesses if a party that drove B.C.’s economy into the ground during the 1990s gets back into power.”
Lake and Stone’s joint meeting will be the fourth candidate selection meeting since the party launched its nomination process in July.
