Join us as we unite the party and restore trust with British Columbians once again. Your Voice Makes Us Stronger.
To restore trust with British Columbians we need to take bold steps. This will be my priority. I am making the following commitments to the people of BC to restore trust once again. I commit to:
Lead with Integrity - I will make responsible decisions with taxpayer dollars and be transparent and accountable. I will not bend rules or be beholden to special interests.
Truly Listen - I will create real partnerships and respond to communities by going beyond surface level engagement.
Unite the Party - I will respect and work with people who have different points of view.
“I talked a lot about the need to renew the party and broaden our appeal. I believe that our focus, in the eyes of the public, became too narrow — just on jobs and the economy, which are very fundamentally important,” said Lee.
“This is very much an opportunity to get out and listen and engage with our members and potential supporters, to find out what we need to rebuild the B.C. Liberal Party,” he said while at a lunch stop at Starboard Grill in Port Alberni. He met with half a dozen supporters in the central Island community before returning to the Comox Valley.
Lee stresses integrity, suggesting it hasn't always been there for the party. "Over the course of time, so many British Columbians and members have lost trust in our party," he said, "in terms of our leadership and what we stand for. We have to regain that."
