In November, British Columbia Restaurant and Foodservices Association president and chief executive officer Ian Tostenson speculated he might run for the provincial Liberal leadership. That didn't happen. But his association is encouraging its members to participate in the race as voters, featuring a series of exclusive interviews with the candidates in the latest edition of its magazine. George Abbott provided the most verbose responses - stretching over two pages. Meanwhile, Moira Stilwell responses weren't featured because of "constraints on her time." Nevertheless, according to the magazine, "Moira has great respect for the industry and the people who work in it and if elected will ensure that the industries concerns are taken into consideration."
