Sears announced she was seeking the nomination last week.

“I will be a voice for all B.C. Interior issues, which are not always well understood on the coast. I have spent my career listening to community needs, and advocating for community solutions. I intend to take this approach with me to Victoria,” she said in a previous news release.
