The BC Liberals may have an entirely different handle when voters go to the polls next May.
Premier Christy Clark says she's open to a name change if it can be done in time, as part of her appeal to unite the centre-right vote in B.C.
"(Former Liberal finance minister) Colin Hansen raised it at the last provincial convention, and I said at the time I was more than willing to entertain the idea, and so we've been talking. One of our vice presidents has travelled the province and talked to members all across the province about it, so we're working on it and I'll let you know when I have some new news."
Meanwhile, Clark gleefully pointed out Tuesday that pollsters were dead wrong about Alberta Premier Alison Redford's chances in Monday's election.
Clark called Redford with congratulations on her surprise victory.
