YAMAMOTO, LEE AND BREMNER TO REPRESENT BC LIBERALS IN 2013
August 9, 2012
Vancouver – Today, the BC Liberal Party announced that MLAs Naomi Yamamoto and Richard T. Lee, as well as new candidate Hector Bremner (New Westminster), will be representing the BC Liberals on the ballot in 2013.
Yamamoto, British Columbia’s Minister of Advanced Education, was first elected in North Vancouver-Lonsdale in 2009. Yamamoto has been a tireless advocate for her constituents, helping deliver a $38 million provincial investment to a new mental health centre at Lions Gate Hospital and a new film and animation centre at Capilano University.
“Working on behalf of my constituents is a passion of mine. I feel very honoured to serve as the MLA in my riding, and I want nothing more than to continue to help represent my community,” said Yamamoto.
Yamamoto will have a nomination meeting in her riding on August 27th.
Richard T. Lee, MLA for Burnaby North, is coming back for his fourth straight election after winning in 2001, 2005 and 2009. Lee also serves as the Parliamentary Secretary for Asia-Pacific.
“I am focused on representing my constituents here in Burnaby North. Come election time, I think British Columbians will look at our record in government and recognize that they’re much better off now than they were in 2001,” said Lee.
“People are concerned about pocketbook issues – taxes, spending, the economy – and our record on those issues is strong.”
Lee also co-chairs the Burnaby Hospital Community Consultation Committee, helping explore ways to improve healthcare service delivery in Burnaby. Lee will be having a nomination meeting in his riding on August 26th.
Hector Bremner, a small businessman from New Westminster, is looking forward to talking about why the BC Liberals are the best party to manage British Columbia’s economy.
“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.
Bremner plans to make jobs, the economy and continued improvements at Royal Columbian Hospital a key part of his campaign.
“The BC Liberal government recently moved forward with a plan to redevelop Royal Columbian Hospital, and I want to help continue to push that initiative forward.”
Bremner will be acclaimed at a meeting in New Westminster on August 18th.
