The roll out of Mr. Jones, was one of a number of candidates named by the leader late last week.
Sunday evening, the North Coast Liberals made it a formal announcement, with a notice to the riding association's Facebook page that introduces the candidate and charts a few topics that may come up for discussion on the campaign trail towards the October 24th election day.
As they head into the campaign, Liberal officials on the North Coast are noting how Mr. Jones is the first ever Indigenous candidate for a major political party to contest a provincial election on the North Coast.“One thing has to be clear. As a first nations candidate, and as your next BC Liberal MLA for North Coast, I will be here for the greater community, as we are all in this together. I will have an open door policy to ensure that you have a voice in the government of BC. I will bring your voice to the table and I promise, nothing is off the table."
