Conservatives ‘committed to learning from this recent election experience’

Dear editor,

I'd like to thank the various local media for their work and effort in the coverage of the election last month.

Dear editor,

In the wake of our recent provincial election and the final vote count, on behalf of the Comox Valley Conservative Constituency Association and myself, I’d like to thank the various local media, the reporters and newspapers for their work and effort in the coverage of the election last month.

Especially, I want to thank the voters of the Comox Valley for their participation in our democratic process. The people did why they said they would: vote Liberals to  avoid a split and end up with an NDP government. In that respect they achieved their goal.

Even thought the BC Conservatives didn’t win this time, we had a good number of folks voting for the Conservative ideals and policies. In the Comox Valley, we came up second on the Island for Conservative votes after Parksville-Qualicum. Nothing to be discouraged about, locally or provincially, considering we are a new grassroots party contesting its first election.

We are committed to learning from this recent election experience and continue to build a better and stronger party.

To all those 1,740 who voted Conservative, I’d like to invite you to contact me for a post-election analysis of our results and resolves for the future by checking my website at

Diane Hoffmann,

Campbell River

Editor’s note:

Diane Hoffmann was a Comox Valley MLA candidate for the BC Conservative Party in last month’s provincial election.
