KELOWNA – The B.C. Liberal Party holds their biannual convention at the Delta Grand Hotel in downtown Kelowna this weekend.

Hundreds of party caucus members are expected to attend including Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick and Surrey lawyer Sukminder Virk who will each serve as co-chair. Check-in started this morning.

“Convention 2014 is a great opportunity to show off everything the Okanagan has to offer,” Letnick says. “I’m excited that our party’s grassroots members will spend this weekend planning, discussing and celebrating right here beside Okanagan Lake.”

The convention is an opportunity to elect party officers, discuss policy resolutions and engage in training exercises. Last year it took place at Whistler and the year before, in Penticton. The last time it was held in Kelowna was 14 years ago in 1999.

“There’s no better place to bring together Today’s BC Liberals and celebrate the anniversary of our election victory,” Premier Christy Clark says. She delivers the keynote address Saturday. “It's only appropriate that we plan for the next three years in Kelowna, the cradle of free enterprise in B.C.”

The entire convention will be streams live on the B.C. Liberal Party website.
