The provincial Liberals may not have much chance of winning Victoria-Beacon Hill - the comfortable seat occupied by New Democrat leader Carole James. But, during the next election, the Liberal candidate in that riding will have an important opportunity to question Ms. James about her politics and policies - or lack thereof. So what prominent Victorian will the Liberals be running in Victoria? Well, in an email sent to supporters, youth president Chris Sandve writes, "I cant tell you who the candidate is but I can say that many members of the BCYL will know this person and be very excited about this announcement." That's because it's his predecessor Dallas Henault, who has been working as the executive assistant to Vancouver-based party executive director Kelly Reichert for the past two years. His candidacy is scheduled to be announced on June 7. The following is a complete copy of Mr. Sandve's email.

On Saturday June 7 a very exciting candidate will be announcing their intention to run against Carole James in the 2009 election in the Victoria Beacon Hill riding.
I cant tell you who the candidate is but I can say that many members of the BCYL will know this person and be very excited about this announcement.
Since this is such an important announcement we will be taking a bus over to Victoria for the event. After the announcement we will head out for a classic Old Spaghetti Factory Dinner.
Please join us for this exciting announcement. Email me back to let me know if you would like to come and I will send you further information.
