Dan Brooks Returned as BC Conservative Leader
Prince George, B.C. – Vanderhoof guide-outfitter Dan Brooks has again been elected leader of the B.C. Conservative Party.
At its two-day leadership convention in Prince George, Brooks on Saturday afternoon was declared the winner with 52.% percent of the party’s support compared to 47.9% for runner-up Konrad Pimiskern of Kelowna. The race also included Jay Cross of Vancouver.
Brooks, who was also elected BC Conservative leader in 2014 before stepping down in 2016, told delegates that his mistake first time around was thinking he was the leader of a few thousand Conservatives when he should have been thinking in terms of leading 4.6 million British Columbians.
250 News will report on an interview conducted with Dan Brooks on Saturday afternoon.
