VANCOUVER, Feb. 2 /CNW/ - With the only two days to go before the membership cut-off in the BC Liberal Leadership race, the list of business leaders who have endorsed Kevin Falcon continues to grow.

"Having observed the leadership race to date, I have become convinced that Kevin Falcon, with his considerable caucus support, presents the best opportunity to maintain the center-right coalition that is essential to the election of a free enterprise government in BC. In addition his experience in the senior portfolios of Transportation and Health leads me to believe he is the best experienced candidate to preform the duties of Premier and to build on the considerable successes of the BC Liberal administration over the past three terms," said business leader Peter Brown.

"I became impressed with Kevin the moment he became the Transportation Minister. Many South Asians depend on the transportation industry for a living, and Kevin was not only accessible to the community, but also helped create hundreds of jobs. He is young, vibrant and hard-working. Kevin inspires leadership in the next generation of British Columbians," said Jay Minhas, President of Elegant Development.
