Description

The British Columbia Liberal Party is a centre-right provincial political party in British Columbia, Canada. The party currently forms the Official Opposition. The leader of the Liberal Party, and Leader of the Official Opposition of British Columbia, is Andrew Wilkinson. Subsequent to the 2020 British Columbia general election, Wilkinson announced his resignation as party leader on October 26, 2020 but remained as interim leader until Shirley Bond was chosen as the new interim leader on November 23; the party will begin the process of organizing a leadership convention. Until the 1940s, British Columbia politics were dominated by the Liberal Party and rival British Columbia Conservative Party. The Liberals formed government from 1916 to 1928 and again from 1933 to 1941. From 1941 to 1952, the two parties governed in a coalition opposed to the ascendant Co-operative Commonwealth Federation.
