The B.C. Liberals, NDP and Greens are battling over succession

Seven vying to lead First Nations advocacy group; vote takes place at end of month

As the battle over the fate of the B.C. Liberals rages on, the opposition parties have been busy getting their nominations in place for the leaders’ debate.

The B.C. Liberals, the NDP and the Greens are in the midst of a fierce leadership contest to replace outgoing leader Adrian Dix.

– Adrian Dix, the former B.C. legislature speaker and a longtime Liberal who has been the province’s chief negotiator on B.C. Hydro. The Liberals would most likely pick him.

– Peter Julian, the former B.C. party leader and a longtime Liberal strategist who is running for the Liberals in the riding of Vancouver Granville. The Liberals would most likely pick him.
