“I am not running for office” – John Brink
Prince George, B.C. – Brink Forest Products owner, John Brink wants to put the rumours to rest. He says he is not going to run in the provincial election.
“I have been there, done that” says Brink, a reference to his failed attempt in 2000-2001 to win the Liberal nomination for the riding of Prince George- Valemount. In an exclusive interview with 250News, Brink says “I have no intentions, not now, or in the future of entering politics. I am not a member of any political party.”
The buzz around Prince George has been that he would be running as an independent in the upcoming Provincial election, and that he would make that race in the riding currently held by MLA Shirley Bond.
“Politics is not something I have been contemplating” says Brink who stated “I have absolutely no interest in getting into politics.”
He says the rumours may have started because of the efforts to raise the profile of the various things his companies are doing, such as the Nechako View subdivision on North Nechako Road. Brink is also involved in an on going civil action he launched over property leased in the B.C.R. which he says turned out to be unusable because of contamination.
