British Columbia’s opposition party will choose a new leader on Feb. 3.
The marathon campaign to replace interim leader Rich Coleman (who succeeded ex-Premier Christy Clark last summer) finally got feisty on Jan. 23.
This is a party at the crossroads. The biggest, first task for the winner will be unity. It won’t be easy to pick-up the pieces and create a new vision for the free enterprise coalition after Clark’s disastrous “clone speech” that plundered the NDP and Green platforms and led to the fall of the 16-year BC Liberal dynasty. It split the party and sparked an indentity crisis.
