Belsey Joins List of George Abbott Supporters

Former North Coast MLA says Abbott would make a great premier


Former North Coast M-L-A Bill Belsey has joined the group of B-C Liberals supporting George Abbott's bid for the party leadership.

Belsey's name is on a list of 14 more party members backing Abbott's campaign to replace Gordon Campbell as our next Premier. The list also includes former mayors and councillors from cities such as Quesnel, Trail, Revelstoke and the Lower Mainland.

In a release, Belsey says Abbott "is truly interested in working on behalf of rural B-C, and will make a great Premier."

Nechako-Lakes M-L-A John Rustad has already announced his support for Abbott, and was at the former Education Minister's side when Abbott announced his leadership bid last month.
