Dan Brooks has been named the new leader of the BC Conservative Party.
He won the vote over Rick Peterson at the party’s convention in Richmond this past weekend.
The party was in desperate need of new blood, following their pitiful showing in last year’s provincial election when they failed to win any seats.
Former leader John Cummins stepped down last July after losing his own riding in Langley.
Brooks, 38, is from Vanderhoof but now calls Kamloops home.
