Mike de Jong is a very interesting person and has many interesting ideas for government. Even if you can not stand the Liberals, it is worth coming out to listen to him talk. Win or lose, he will be still be an important voice in the BC Liberal government.
What I like about him is that he listens to people and is honestly interested in what people have to say. I also really like Mike on a personal level. That said, I am backing George Abbott and you can read my reasons here.
