Leadership for a New Generation
Every generation gets a chance to define its future. Here in British Columbia, the BC Liberal Party and our province are at that moment. Our leadership race is a chance to renew our Party and Province, and help define not only our future, but also our children's future.
When you start talking about BC's future, you have to start by talking with all British Columbians and their families about the things that are important to them. Not just urban British Columbians or rural British Columbians, but all British Columbians. Because when everything is said and done, it's our people and their ideas that set us apart as a great place to live, work and do business.
For me, it means a style that boils down to three words: listen, learn, lead. During my nine years in government, including overseeing the health and transportation ministries, that’s the approach I’ve taken. I know that approach works and it is the key to reconnecting with British Columbians and making sure that we’re listening when they speak up.
As you consider the vision we are putting forward, you'll see that our ongoing priority is the well-being of the next generation of British Columbians. To ensure our kids grow up to enjoy every opportunity that we have, and more, we need to continue to provide an economic framework that encourages investment and job creation; we need to continue to make changes in our health care system, ensuring a strong, public health care system will be there for their generation too; we need to fulfill what should be the promise of each generation to provide the best possible education for our children and prepare them for a rapidly changing and competitive world, and we need to recognize families are the backbone of this Province by ensuring that they are in the best position possible to thrive in every area of BC.
I encourage you to put forward your own ideas for a new generation of leadership by clicking on the 'listen' icon on this website, so that I can have the opportunity to learn from your suggestions. Please take the time to check back on our policy section as it is developed and moulded over the campaign period, in consultation with people across the Province.
If we are willing to listen, learn, and lead, I believe that British Columbians will renew their faith in the BC Liberal Party as the best option to deliver the right balance of economic growth and effective government programs that will create the best possible future for our children.
