BC Conservatives ready for an election

Strong response to fundraiser an indication of support

Randy White says the BC Conservatives are ready for an election at any time.

If the response to this Saturday’s fundraising dinner is any indication, the BC Conservative Party has a bright future in the area, says Randy White.

The former Reform Party MP is helping to organize the dinner, which will feature a speech by party leader designate John Cummins.

“I’m pleasantly surprised by the interest,” White said. “We will pretty well have a full house, although if someone wants to go they can get hold of me and we’ll fit them in.”

The dinner, slated for 6 p.m. Saturday at Tigh-Na-Mara, costs $50 per ticket.

Although he was surprised at the response, White stressed the BC Conservatives are continuing to attract strong support in Oceanside and around the province and he stressed the party will be ready for whatever comes down the pipe.

“We know the support is there,” he said. “A provincial election wouldn’t catch us off guard at all now. We have the vast majority of ridings up and running and candidates are coming out even now.”

White said two or even three potential candidates for the Parksville-Qualicum riding will be in the room and one of them is slated to speak. However, he wouldn’t reveal who the hopefuls are prior to them making an official announcement.

“Any time now we are ready and able to go,” he said.

Anyone who would like to purchase a ticket to this event can contact White at Randywhitehome@yahoo.ca.
