Trevena chooses a side in NDP leadership race

At a weekend rally for his B.C. NDP leadership bid, John Horgan welcomed 10 new MLA supporters, including MLA Claire Trevena.

Horgan told a New Westminster rally that real leadership takes a strong and diverse team that can connect with all British Columbians.

“I am incredibly grateful for the support and encouragement from this group of talented and committed colleagues and the growing number of New Democrats throughout the province,” said Horgan. Trevena said Horgan has what it takes to lead the NDP.

“John understands that real leadership is about working together for a strong and sustainable economy, and creating opportunities for British Columbians,” said North Island NDP MLA Claire Trevena. “He’s ready, he understands what people care about and what it takes to win.”

Trevena was elected as the MLA for the North Island in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. She is Opposition critic for transportation and ferries.

“Claire and I have worked together on issues important to all Islanders,” said Horgan. “We’ve spent a lot of time together, talking to constituents about their priorities. I’m proud of her advocacy and glad to have her on my team.”
