Under proportional representation, the BCCP will be poised to win multiple seats in the legislature, which is sure to up the ante and bring a lot of new attention to the party.
One rumoured leadership candidate is Aaron Gunn, the spokesperson for the activist group BC Proud. Gunn gave the keynote address at the party’s convention this November and lambasted both the NDP and Liberals for their support of the carbon tax and the ICBC monopoly.
The overarching issue of affordability is one that hit home with party members. The BCCP grew to prominence after the BC Liberals introduced the Carbon Tax in 2008, at one point polling at over 21%.
A poll from earlier this year had them at 8.9% despite having no sitting members in the legislature or permanent leader.
What do you think will happen in the BCCP leadership race? Let us know in the comments down below.
