BC Liberal Caucus
The BC Liberal Party has announced that two Carols, Carol Leclerc and Carol Fielding, will be vying for the Party’s nomination in Skeena. The two are set to square off at a candidate selection meeting on September 28th in Terrace.
Carol Leclerc, a former Terrace City Councilor and longtime resident of Terrace, wants to ensure that the strong economic growth seen by the region over the past number of years continues.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside Premier Christy Clark and the rest of the BC Liberal team,” said potential candidate Carol Leclerc.
“It is extremely important that we continue to grow in this economic climate. Skeena needs someone who will work tirelessly to protect the future of this region, and I’ve got the skills and experience to do it.”
Carol Fielding, the Executive Director of the Terrace & District Chamber of Commerce, works closely with local businesses, participates on various working committees in the community, and wants to run for the BC Liberals to keep the Skeena region on track.
“Our region is blessed with natural resources like wood, minerals, natural gas and hydro for electricity. We must continue to build a viable, safe and sustainable economic future,” said potential candidate Carol Fielding.
“I know how to take a great idea and make it a success. With my role in bringing Kraft Hockeyville to Terrace, I showed how to do just that. I am excited about the opportunity to help the BC Liberals win in 2013.”
