Surrey: Surrey South MLA Elenore Sturko has left BC United to join the Conservative Party of BC, just months before the provincial election. Sturko stated her goal is to “rebuild the coalition needed to defeat the NDP.”

Her move follows the recent defection of former BC United caucus chair Lorne Doerkson, who left the official Opposition last Friday, bringing the Conservative presence in the legislature to four.

The Conservatives recently rejected a “non-competition” agreement proposed by BC United, with Conservative Leader John Rustad and BC United Leader Kevin Falcon blaming each other for the failure of the talks.

In her statement, Sturko highlighted that while polls might be ignored, the feedback from voters is clear. She believes the New Democrat government doesn’t deserve to win the next election, but a split vote between BC United and the Conservatives would hand victory to the NDP.
