VICTORIA, BC – May 31, 2024: Lorne Doerkson, MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin, has joined the Conservative Party of British Columbia.

“Today, I am making a change because I believe this upcoming election is simply too consequential,” said Doerkson. “I have spent countless hours listening to my constituents in the recent months. The response has been overwhelming. The residents of Cariboo-Chilcotin want to see David Eby defeated and they want to see a common sense Conservative government in Victoria,” he continued.

“I look forward to working with John Rustad and the Conservative team. Whether it is axing the carbon tax, revitalizing our resource sector or reforming our broken healthcare system, it’s never been more clear that BC needs a common sense government.”

“My priority is defeating the radical BC NDP and it is now clear that the Conservative Party of BC is the only vehicle capable of getting the job done. I call on all British Columbians to join me in standing with the Conservative Party of BC,” concluded Doerkson.

“I’m thrilled to have Lorne on the team. As the MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin, Lorne has been a tireless advocate for his region and the vital resources within it, “ said Conservative Leader, John Rustad. “Whether it’s natural resources or small business, Lorne is an individual who puts his constituents first and that is exactly the kind of advocate we need in the Legislature. He will be a strong Conservative MLA for the riding.”

The Conservative Party of British Columbia looks forward to running 93 candidates in the upcoming provincial election.
