This week, the recently elected directors include:

  • Ryan Warawa, who's listed as president of the B.C. Conservatives on its website. Warawa, son of recently deceased former Conservative MP Mark Warawa, was actively supporting Glen Chernen at the party's 2018 mayoral nomination meeting. Chernen is listed as the secretary of the B.C. Conservatives on its website. After Chernen lost the NPA mayoral nomination to businessman Ken Sim, he ran as a council candidate with the harder right-wing Coalition Vancouver party. Warawa was elected to a one-year term.
  • Christopher Wilson, who was publicly chastised by Liberal cabinet minister Catherine McKenna in 2017. This came after Wilson, then the B.C. bureau chief of the notoriously alt-right Rebel Media, described McKenna as a "Climate Barbie". Wilson is listed as a director-at-large on the B.C. Conservatives' website. (Two-year term)
