Former BC Liberal Leader Resigns seat in Legislature

Andrew Wilkinson the former Leader of the BC Liberals and British Columbia MLA for Vancouver-Quilchena announced that he was resigning from the legislature.

Wilkinson had announced after the BC Liberal Leadership Election in early February that he would be stepping down so the new Leader Kevin Falcon could run in a by-election.

The seat is one of the safest for the Liberal Party and it’s common practice for a sitting MLA to offer their seat to a leader who doesn’t currently hold a riding.
