Premier is missing all candidate debate in Vancouver-Point Grey

One of the first all candidate debates is taking place in Vancouver-Point Grey without the Liberals

Premier Christy Clark is the Liberal candidate in this riding but the party says her invite came too late.

Andrew Wilkinson, the Liberal candidate in nearby Vancouver-Quilchena, showed  up to take the Premier’s place but organizers of the debate won’t let him take part.

“We’re looking forward to a lively debate here at UBC.  It’s within the Vancouver-Point Grey riding and at this point UBC Alma  Matter Society has decided to exlude us from the debate.”

There are five candidates taking part in the debate from the  NDP, the BC Conservatives, the Green Party and  an independent.
