John Cummins’ name mentioned in B.C. Conservative leadership race
Is John Cummins considering a run at the B.C. Conservative Party leadership?
While the Delta-Richmond East Conservative MP isn’t commenting, sources tell The Richmond Review there is a chance Cummins will resign his seat to seek the leadership of the provincial party.
Cummins is a member of the B.C. Conservative Party’s tactical advisory group.
He has been an MP since 1993 and has been a vocal critic of Fisheries and Oceans Canada over the years.
The Conservatives haven’t elected an MLA in B.C. since 1979.
The party fielded 24 candidates in the 2009, though none were elected and not one finished higher than third in a riding.
The party has been leaderless since Wilf Hanni resigned in 2009.
Conservatives will pick a new leader on May 28.
