PENTICTON – BC’s Liberal Party says its deputies voted to start a process to potentially change the party name.

This is because about 800 members gathered at a convention in Penticton this weekend to welcome new leader Kevin Falcon and map out strategy ahead of the scheduled provincial election in the fall of 2024.

Falcon, who won the leadership race earlier this year, said in a release that the party’s name “must be a name that reflects a diverse and inclusive marquee coalition”.

He says that by the end of the year, each member will have a chance to vote on a new proposed name or keep the current one.

The party says it plans to appoint an executive to form a name change committee.

The BC Liberals are not affiliated with the Federal Liberal Party and have described themselves as a “made-in-BC free enterprise coalition”.
