SALMON ARM, B.C. - A Salmon Arm man who ran for the BC Conservatives during the provincial election in May is seeking a higher profile within the party.
Tom Birch, who was the provincial Tories' Shuswap candidate, says he will be running for party president at their annual general meeting next month in Vernon.
Birch, who works for a forestry software company, says he disagrees with some analysts who feel the Conservatives will never be a legitimate contender in B.C. politics.
