B.C. Liberal leadership candidate Todd Stone stops in Revelstoke

After announcing his platform last week, B.C. Liberal leadership candidate Todd Stone stopped by Revelstoke for a meet and greet.

Stone, serving his second term as an MLA in Kamloops- South Thompson, bumped shoulders with supporters Monday evening at the Regent Hotel.

Stone spoke about highway safety including variable speed zones and avalanche mitigation at Three Valley Gap during his tenure as Minister of Transportation.

He spoke about the spring election.

“We’re in the midst of a very significant change in B.C. politics,” he said. “What this has all triggered is a leadership race in the B.C. Liberal party.

“The fundamental question I believe in this race is what kind of leadership do we want for our province?”

Stone said he was the only candidate running for Liberal leadership who resided outside of the Lower Mainland.

Said Stone, “Our campaign is all about a new generation of leadership.”
