Norm Letnick

Kelowna-Lake Country Candidate

The BC Liberal Party has acclaimed Norm Letnick as the Party’s candidate for Kelowna-Lake Country in the upcoming provincial election.

Letnick is currently in his fourth year serving as BC’s Minister of Agriculture and has served as the MLA for the people of Kelowna Lake Country for seven. Prior to being elected to the legislature in 2009 Letnick served 9 years as a municipal councillor including 3 years on Kelowna City Council. He is a former business leader and professor, has served as chair on BC’s Legislative Committee on Health, president of a not-for-profit housing corporation and Rotary Club.

“Service to my community is more than a single action – it’s a lifetime privilege,” says Letnick. “And now, as a new grandfather, I have even more motivation to make sure the needs of all my constituents are strongly represented in Victoria, for their benefit and to benefit our next generation.”

Letnick has been a strong advocate for economic growth, improvements in the delivery of health care services, preventative health, investments in education, highways, transit, pathways, and water infrastructure. He is the provinces’ primary champion for strengthening British Columbia’s food security, and is an active supporter and volunteer for many social organizations in the Valley, including Inn From The Cold and both the Kelowna and Lake Country Food Banks.

“Together we have accomplished a lot, but we still have more work to do,” said Letnick. “I look forward in the coming months to working with residents on their priorities as I prepare to fight again for Kelowna-Lake Country interests in Victoria.”

As a key member of Premier Christy Clark’s Cabinet, Letnick is honoured to have earned the trust and endorsements of many local families, First Nations groups, and business leaders:

  • “Norm has done a great job as our MLA and as Minister of Agriculture. I certainly support his nomination for another term as our MLA and look forward to working with him after the next election.” — James Baker, Mayor District of Lake Country.

  • “Norm demonstrates inclusive leadership combined with strong business acumen. As an influential representative for the Kelowna-Lake Country riding, Norm has engaged in respectful relations with the Syilx people and the Okanagan Indian Band specifically. We look forward to continuing a positive and fruitful relationship with him for many years to come.” – Chief Byron Louis, Okanagan Indian Band, ONA Chairman

  • “Norm Letnick was born to serve. And, more often than not, it’s service seven days a week. His demonstrated commitment to his Community and to British Columbia is exemplary.” — Walter Gray, former Mayor of Kelowna.
