Ralph Sultan was on CKNW's Bill Good show this morning talking about the HST. At the end of the interview, Good asked Sultan who he was supporting in the BC Liberal leadership race. When asked why he was endorsing George Abbott's leadership bid he pointed to five criteria, but said it was the fact that Abbott has "met a payroll and run his own business...and in building character and common sense there is no better training."
“Ralph has been an outstanding representative for his constituents in West Vancouver-Capilano since 2001,” says George Abbott. “He has several decades of professional experience at the most senior levels of business in the resource and financial sectors. I’m honoured that he has chosen to provide me with his support.”
The CKNW conversation can be heard through the radio's stations audio archive, when the question was asked at 9:27am:
Sultan joins 16 other BC Liberal Ministers and MLAs who have put their support behind George Abbott’s candidacy for Premier.
