The B.C. Conservatives have two nominees in the wings following confirmation over the weekend of Peter Sharp’s candidacy in Kamloops-South Thompson.
Ed Fehr, the Kamloops-North Thompson constituency association president, will also be the candidate for the riding. The announcement was made Monday afternoon via Twitter.
He’ll be running against incumbent Liberal Terry Lake and NDP challenger Kathy Kendall.
Michael Beauclair was also confirmed on Monday as the party’s candidate for Fraser-Nicola, where he’ll be up against longtime MLA Harry Lali and Liberal challenger Jackie Tegart.
Beauclair, who defeated former Lytton mayor Chris O’Connor, is a log scaler who works for Tolko Industries and has his own company, Nikaia Creek Contracting.
He is married and has two teen daughters. Tegart, who served as president of the B.C. School Trustees Association when she was on the local school board, is serving her third term on Ashcroft village council.
She also serves on the executive of SILGA, the Southern Interior Local Government Association.
