KAMLOOPS - A local developer has adding his name to list of people seeking B.C. Liberal Party nomination in Kamloops-North Thompson
Michael Grenier is running against Mayor Peter Milobar and North Shore Business Improvement Association executive director Steven Puhallo.
“I’d like to use this nomination period as a platform for good, new, fresh ideas for the B.C. Liberals,” he says.
Grenier is best known as the man behind the Tobiano development on Kamloops Lake, where he works and lives.
Today, Spet. 15, he made his announcement at the Kamloops Airport and spoke about ideas for growing the airport and its role in the community. He’d like to see expanded jobs training for work in the air travel industry, a free trade area to help Kamloops businesses, an airport hotel and less red tape to allow more flights to international destinations like Las Vegas and Miami.
Grenier plans to reveal more ideas as the campaign progesses.
“I’m a fellow who gets out and does things,” he says. “I think that I can apply my skills quite successfully as an advocate for the people of Kamloops-North Thompson.”
Grenier is running against Milobar and Puhallo for the party nomination in the riding. No date has been released by the local B.C. Liberal Party riding association as to when a vote will happen to choose the party’s nominee.
He says no matter who wins the nomination, he'll support the B.C. Liberal party candidate.
The winner will face Barbara Nederpel from the NDP, Dan Hines from the Green Party and Peter Kerek in the Communist Party.
