The leader of the BC Green Party is putting his political career on the line for next year’s provincial election.
“I’m going to work as hard as I can, as will the BC Greens, to get as many MLAs in the Legislature as the British Columbia population will give us.”
Andrew Weaver says its important his party get a number of MLAs elected to join him in Victoria and if he ends up going it alone again…
“I stood aside from my career to do that. I will do that two terms. If I am alone in the BC Legislature, hear it first and hear it now, I am not going run a third term. It will be a message from me to British Columbians that they don’t really want to change politics. So I am going to give it my all out for the next term but I will not run three terms if I do not get a substantial number of MLAs joining me in the BC Legislature.”
As for what a substantial number of MLAs means Weaver says more than two and less than 86.
Weaver adds the party will run candidates in every riding in BC except Delta South as they won’t run against Vicki Huntington.
