With the possibility this week of no deal with the Green Party this week, the BC Liberals will for surely look to dump BC Liberal Christy Clark, who, if the murmurs are to be believed, is already being blamed for the election debacle despite millions in her election kitty.

There are several individuals who will surely jockey, test the field in becoming the next BC Liberal leader and the opportunity may be ripe for right individual to shape the province in their worldview.

Let’s forget the usual riff raff of Wannabes:

 (1) Wannabe kingmakers who failed this election to get a single candidate elected in their city,

 (2) The old guard always chasing to be in the lime light and not knowing his/her time has come and gone

(3) The usual suspects waiting for an appointment

(4) The player who thinks he is playing both sides but never ends up with anything (5) And the Losers, sorry those candidates who lost!

The NO CHANCE Candidates

BC-Liberal Contenders-JonesBC-Liberal Contenders-StoneTodd Stone, the former Minister of Transportation who thinks he can be the leader, but he was part of the reason why the Liberals lost so many seats from his dealing with taxis and truckers – no chance at winning.

Pamela Goldsmith Jones, the Former Mayor of west Vancouver and  current Federal Member of Parliament from West Vancouver  and Parliamentary secretary who will never make it to Federal cabinet let alone as the BC Liberal Leader. Goldsmith Jones is too much of a flip-flop on the issues and wishy washy – zero chance at winning

The CONTENDERS

BC-Liberal Contenders-Falcon2Kevin Falcon, the Former Minister of Finance has the edge to become leader. He has sat out of politics and been working in development but still kept all his contact – good chance at winning.

BC-Liberal Contenders-Black Iain Black, the Former Minister of Innovation has the business connections as he has been the CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. However his organization would be quite similar to Kevin Falcon’s, so he may get squeezed out – fair chance at winning.

BC-Liberal Contenders-RennieBob Rennie, the Condo King with all his fundraising ability would easily raise the money he would need to make a serious attempt. However his life is more about art these days as he just made a $12 million dollar donation to the Canada National Gallery – will sit it out.

 BC-Liberal Contenders-SidhuJati Sidhu, the Member of Parliament for Matsqui was a surprise win in the federal election, but he has the nice guy attitude and can play spoiler with his Indo-Canadian support – game changer.

The DARK-HORSES

BC-Liberal Contenders-LeeGraham Lee and Ryan Beedie are two powerhouse developers who could get make the contest interesting if either throws his hat in the ring – Dark-horses.

BC-Liberal Contenders-BeedieCarole Taylor the Former Finance Minister, Dianne Watts the Former Mayor of Surrey and current Member of Parliament, and Sue Paish the CEO of Life Labs could all bring an interesting element to the race – dark horse.

The Potential KINGMAKER!

Randeep Sarai, the Federal Member of Parliament of Surrey Centre and the chair of the Liberal Caucus of BC has the capacity to change the race, but is too focused on his job with Trudeau to depart Ottawa – but he could be a potential Kingmaker!
