Lekstrom rules out B.C. Liberal leadership bid

 

Blair Lekstrom has announced he will not be running for the Liberal party leadership in B.C.

The MLA for Peace River South says he made the decision because he wanted to maintain his quality of life with his family and friends, which he believes he wouldn’t be able to do as leader.

Lekstrom says it was a hard decision to make and admits the opportunity to run for the leadership doesn’t come around very often.

He says he’s humbled by the opportunity to even consider running for the leadership, but simply wants to continue doing his work as MLA.
