George Abbott says goodbye to politics

B.C. Education Minister, George Abbott.

Critics are calling the BC Liberal party a sinking ship. The party itself says it's a a fresh start. As of August 31, 10 MLA's including three cabinet ministers have nnounced they are not seeking reelection. Another one crossed the floor and is sitting as a provincial conservative. Education Minister and Shuswap MLA George Abbott is one of the retirees. He's a four-term Liberal who ran for the party leadership last year. He had a goodbye chat with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
