The BC Conservative Party faithful will gather in Langley this September to determine the course of their new party heading into the next provincial election.
The annual general meeting of the party will be held at the Langley Events Centre, with the main session taking place Saturday, Sept. 22.
The convention is expected to hash out the final policies that will guide the party through the 2013 vote.
A policy document has been released through the party's website, and it includes a number of potential changes and updates from the previous document.
It would mandate the party to protect the rights of hunters, trappers, and fisherman, as well as increasing enforcement in that area.
Crown corporations would have to show they could offer services at or below the cost of private enterprise, and considering offshore oil and gas drilling "using the multitude of studies already completed."
The draft policies also commit to retaining the Agricultural Land Reserve, and to fight agriculture subsidies overseas that give foreign farmers advantages.
Party leader John Cummins, who rep-resented Delta for years in the federal Parliament as a Reform and Conservative MP, now lives in Langley.
In addition, former MP Randy White, who represented a Langley-Abbotsford riding, is now one of Cummins' advisors.
The BC Conservatives are going up against the NDP and the Liberals in the next provincial election next year.
Last year, the party met in Nanaimo for their AGM and policy convention, holding the bulk of the policy meetings without media present.
Cummins said it was done so members could openly debate and speak their minds on the issues.
