BC Liberal Party and incumbent Shirley Bond has her second challenger in the Prince George-Valemount riding. 

The BC Libertarian announced today (Sept. 26) Sean Robson has been acclaimed the candidate for the seat, which Bond has held since 2006. 

Robson would have been the third candidate in the riding but the BC Ecosocialist Party saw candidate Stuart Parker resign after numerous alleged incidents involving transphobic comments. 

Robson, who has lived in Prince George for 27 years, drives a logging truck for a locally owned and operated contractor while also being a father. 

"You have to start somewhere, and I want to help create prosperity in BC for British Columbians now and in the future," he says in a news release.

“There are many monopolies operating in BC that have been mismanaged by most governments over the years, this needs to end. WorksafeBC and its managers hold an incredible amount of authority with inadequate legal representation for the claimant, that needs to change. Economic opportunities in this province are part and parcel with our resources, relieving our markets, industries and individuals of regulations and taxes that stifle an individual's opportunities here in BC is necessary for future prosperity."

Robson is currently in the process of gathering the 75 require signatures to file his paperwork with Elections BC. 

"I am offering the chance to forge a path towards liberty and opportunity for the people of Prince George-Valemount riding.

“If you don’t normally vote, consider me a breath of fresh air in a stagnant system of governance that has remained polluted for generations."

The BC Libertarian Party ran a total of 30 candidates in 2017's provincial election. 

Founded in 1986, the party's mandate says it advocates for individual liberty, lower taxes, free markets, and social tolerance, noting all B.C. residents "should be free to pursue their vision of a better life, as long as they never harm another person while doing so."

The BC Libertarian recently acclaimed Raymond Rodgers as its candidate in the riding of Prince George-Mackenzie.
