Letter: Jody Wilson-Raybould would make good B.C. premier

Should Premier John Horgan retire, former federal cabinet minister's experience would make her an excellent choice as his successor.
Jody Wilson-Raybould would be a good choice as premier of Btitish Columbia


There have been calls for Premier Horgan to retire.

That is, I believe, a decision he will make, as he knows more about his health than we do.

However, I also believe it prudent for those in power, both in government and the NDP, to start a contingency plan for when the inevitable happens.

This is a golden opportunity to show what our new “establishment” is made of. They can deal with reconciliation merely by constructing an expensive edifice in the farthest corner of the province, or by electing someone who knows something about these complex matters. They can elect someone who knows Ottawa from learning the hard way, and is not afraid to speak her mind. They can elect someone who has shown she is a good administrator and team builder.

I speak, of course, of Jody Wilson-Raybould as successor to our Premier.
