So its official, Dr. Moira Stillwell just announced she is withdrawing from the liberal leadership race and backing George Abbott.
Less than one hour earlier, Ida Chong and Dr. Margaret MacDiarmid appeared at a Liberal meet + greet in Victoria, resplendent in white and purple respectively to put their 2c behind Kevin Falcon.
Christy Clark is now the last woman standing in this race, with endorsements from within Caucus still looking a little thin (not to mention BC Rail seems to be sticking like shit to a blanket!), her star seems to be tarnishing somewhat since last weekend’s convention.
Anyhoo, it appears as though the boys are making a concerted effort to demonstrate they’re on top of the issues women care about — enough to attract … in the words of Kevin Falcon’s tweet “two distinguished women” to his team. A little late in the game to be diversifying beyond the pinstripe suit set, but better late than never!
