Neither Rodgers or Robson could be reached for an interview.

"After seeing the division mainstream parties not only create but thrive on, I saw that someone needed to stand up and show the province there is a path forward that includes all people not just the wealthy and those whom influence a party with the most fiscal donations," Rodgers' bio on the B.C. Libertarian website. "I have always been frustrated by partisan politics and can rapidly say I have only ever voted for independents."

Robson, a 37-year-old single father, works in the logging industry and became interested in politics after leaving the military in 2008, his bio says.

"I found the economic opportunity in the region to be greatly diminished and the response from all levels of government to be less than satisfactory," Robson's bio said. "Seeing the policy of huge wealth transfers fail the region and many areas of Canada, I set out to learn all I could about the financial and economic responsibilities of government. Through my unofficial education I came to the conclusion that governments themselves were the main driver of poor economic opportunity across international jurisdiction and that the interventions while implemented with good intentions were the cause of the most heartache and stress in my community and across the world."
