Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes endorses Kevin Falcon to be next BC Liberal Leader, Premier

“Experience matters now, more than ever.

As we witness the catastrophic impacts of recent wildfires and floods across BC, it’s critically important that we have a leader who knows how to lead during times of crisis and rebuild our province.

That leader is Kevin Falcon.

I first met Kevin when I was in local government. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge, ability, and collaborative approach to leadership.

In order to quickly rebuild our communities and infrastructure, we need a leader who knows how to effectively work with all levels of government and break down the bureaucratic silos that slow down our recovery.

Kevin Falcon is the only leader that has the experience and track record neededto meet the challenges we are faced with.

Kevin was at the cabinet table when the province had to face the pine beetle infestation, H1N1 pandemic, and 2007/08 economic crisis.

As Transportation Minister, Kevin oversaw the construction of many vital infrastructure links across our province, including the Cariboo Connector in my riding of Cariboo North.

I’m excited to endorse Kevin Falcon to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party.”
