Join us as we unite the party and restore trust with British Columbians once again. Your Voice Makes Us Stronger.
To restore trust with British Columbians we need to take bold steps. This will be my priority. I am making the following commitments to the people of BC to restore trust once again. I commit to:
Lead with Integrity - I will make responsible decisions with taxpayer dollars and be transparent and accountable. I will not bend rules or be beholden to special interests.
Truly Listen - I will create real partnerships and respond to communities by going beyond surface level engagement.
Unite the Party - I will respect and work with people who have different points of view.
Today, the BC Liberal Party made an important decision to reject the candidacy of Mr. Gunn. Among the six candidates who have been given the green light to run, I know that we share an interest in creating a more inclusive BC Liberal Party. We cannot rebuild a successful political movement, nor do what's right for BC, without a real commitment to diversity and inclusion.
"I am running to lead the rebuild of the BC Liberal party," said Lee, who finished a close third during the 2018 leadership race. "This time, what is so important is we need to restore trust with members of our party, supporters, donors, and British Columbians. I believe we have lost trust as a party with British Columbians and, fundamentally, in order for British Columbians to have confidence and faith in us again, we need to work on that."
