FORT ST. JOHN, BC (March 3, 2023): Conservative Party leader Trevor Bolin has been appointed as the interim leader until a leadership election is held.  Speaking from his hometown of Fort St. John, the City Councillor and business owner said he would like to spend more time with his family. 

“Today marks three years and ten months since I was fortunate enough to be named the leader of BC’s Conservatives. In political life, that’s a provincial election, two by-elections, a municipal election, three AGMs, double the membership, and yesterday ago.

“I am extremely proud of the party and its executive and am humbled by the experience to build and create throughout this great province alongside my amazing candidates and incredibly hardworking board and executive,” Bolin continued.

“Recently, I have asked the executive to appoint me the interim leader of the party, and I will officially step into that role today. This opens the path for the party to hold a leadership nomination and election that I am excited to be able to assist in from a committee perspective. A lot of our lives have changed in the last few years, and with the loss of my parents, I have decided my family needs to come first at this time.”

“I am proud of what we have done as Conservatives across this province and look forward to continuing to champion my home riding of Peace River North and running as a Conservative under our new leader in next year's election,” Bolin concluded.

The Conservative Party of BC executive has named Vancouver Lawyer Aisha Estey to Chair the newly formed Leadership Elections Organizing Committee (LEOC) that will oversee the process for a leadership race. The rules and procedures of the leadership race will be announced in the coming weeks.
