Voting begins for new leader

Voting to choose a new leader for B.C.'s Liberals is open for an estimated 60,000 party members.

They can cast their ballots by phone or online for one of six candidates vying to replace Christy Clark, who resigned last summer after the New Democrats defeated her minority government with the support of the Green party.

The field of six candidates includes three former cabinet ministers, two former big city mayors and a first-time member of the legislature from Metro Vancouver with the leader to be chosen on Saturday.

Political scientist Hamish Telford says former Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts might be the people’s choice as leader but he thinks the party may prefer someone with previous cabinet experience.
