Endorsements

– Michelle Stilwell
MLA for Parksville-Qualicum

I believe that Andrew represents the best chance for the BC Liberal Party to renew itself - thanks to his willingness to listen, learn and lead. Andrew is ready to be Premier today, that's what sets him apart from the rest.

Andrew stands out amongst a very talented group of leadership candidates. He is open to new ideas and has the knowledge and experience to address the issues that British Columbia is facing.

– Ellis Ross

Andrew has a huge heart. He cares deeply about the people of British Columbia. He cares about doing what’s right. Andrew has the strength, experience and heart to lead and renew the BC Liberals, to fight the biased referendum and to win the next election.

– John Rustad
MLA for Nechako Lakes

Andrew’s integrity, honesty and work ethic are second-to-none. A real team player who builds and maintains relationships so we can accomplish our common goals. I am proud to endorse Andrew Wilkinson for leader of the BC Liberal Party.

– Joan Isaacs
MLA for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain

Andrew is brilliant - a strategic thinker, a compassionate listener and a proven leader. Andrew understands our province and the people in it, from our youth to seniors. I’m excited about the vision that Andrew has laid out in his platform. I’m equally excited for Andrew to bring his considerable strengths to bear against John Horgan and the NDP. With Andrew as our leader, he is our best bet to win the next election.

– Norm Letnick
MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country

We have a list of excellent candidates, but I have chosen as Andrew my choice to keep our coalition together. With pluralistic, liberal instincts and conservative smarts, Andrew comes from Vancouver but has lived all over BC. He's brilliant, hugely qualified, a decisive leader who is yet down to earth and approachable. I like him, and the people of BC will, too.

– Laurie Throness
MLA for Chilliwack-Hope

The BC Liberal Party represents free enterprise, innovation and the unleashing of the boundless potential that our province holds. Andrew embodies that spirit – through his time as a small town doctor, BC Liberal Party president, lawyer, Deputy Minister and member of cabinet. Andrew grew up in a family of modest means – but British Columbia gave him the opportunity to excel. I hope that the next step that Andrew takes along the way will be the leader of our party and ultimately, the Premier of British Columbia.

– Linda Larson
MLA for Boundary-Similkameen

Andrew is genuine, ready, and proven. He reminds me of the best qualities of Gordon Campbell. He has the experience and know-how, and is determined to provide every opportunity possible for British Columbians. Andrew is ready on Day One, will unite us as a Party, win against Horgan’s rigged referendum, and lead us to victory whenever the next election happens. He is the best leader for all of B.C.

– Bill Bennett
Former MLA for Kootenay East

Andrew has the leadership skills we need to take on Horgan and the NDP from day one. Andrew has lived all over the province as a rural doctor, and I’ve seen first-hand his deep and thoughtful understanding of communities all around the province. I’m excited about our future as BC Liberals with Andrew – a leader who listens. A leader who understands. A leader who is ready.

– Mike Morris
MLA for Prince George-Mackenzie

Andrew understands the Kootenays and is the best choice to lead our party and fight for rural B.C. and take on the NDP in the next election.

Andrew is a true born leader, ready to unite the BC Liberal Party now, and has the drive and intelligence to strengthen British Columbia’s free enterprise coalition. He realizes this is a province of resilient, hard working and diverse citizens and understands a successful leader cares for the common good of all. I am proud to be supporting him.

– Donna Barnett

I’m proud to support Andrew to lead the BC Liberal Party. Without a doubt, Andrew is the best and brightest choice take on the NDP on day one in the legislature. Andrew is a smart, attentive problem solver who gets things done and keeps his word. British Columbians deserve a leader who understands the challenges we face from each corner of the province and everywhere in between – Andrew is truly a leader for All of B.C.

Andrew brings a unique skill set to the table as a candidate to lead the BC Liberal Party. His drive, ability to listen, intelligence and experience make him the clear choice to renew the BC Liberal Party and lead us into the next election. I have known Andrew for over 30 years and, having worked with him in legal and political realms, I know that he will be a leader who can inspire and unite us.

– Paul Ives

I think he's the full meal deal; a true friend who's immensely loyal. People characterize him as the doctor-lawyer, and I absolutely think there's nothing wrong with that because running the province of B.C. is a complex issue.

– Paul Taylor
former Deputy Minister of Finance

As Kelowna’s longest serving Mayor, I know how Kelowna and the Okanagan work. I also know that Andrew is the best choice to lead the BC Liberal Party for our region, and For all of B.C.
