Lekstrom to seek re-election in South Peace

Blair Lekstrom says he will run again in the next provincial election.

In an interview with the Prince George Citizen, Lekstrom says he will see re-election as an MLA in Peace River South, a riding he has represented since 2001.

Lekstrom quit the Liberal cabinet and caucus in June to demonstrate his unhappiness with the way the Harmonized Sales Tax has been implemented in B.C
