Second week of British Columbia's election campaign begins

Campaign enters 2nd week

The leaders of British Columbia's main political parties spent the weekend focusing on health care promises as the first week of the campaign ended.

The NDP's John Horgan promised to push ahead on new hospitals in northwest British Columbia and in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island if re-elected.

B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson, meanwhile, said he wouldn't bring back medical services plan premiums if his party wins the election on Oct. 24.

On Sunday, Green Leader Sonia Furstenau said the party is working to field a full slate of candidates, but it may fall short.

She says last week's snap election call a year before the next scheduled polling date and the party's leadership race has taxed its resources to the limit.

Candidate nominations for the election close on Friday.
