A number of BC Liberals were also in attendance at the annual conservative BBQ in South Surrey on Monday, as they stood in a crowd which included a provincial rival.
BC Conservative party leader John Cummins says despite everyone being at the same event there would be no backroom talks to unite the right in this province.
"I don't think there is any room at all for talks between us and the BC Liberals. We are an independant party, we are a party of the people, we don't represent special interest groups, we are there to represent the folks. I think that the Liberals have just done a lousy job of doing that and we are there, if you will, to clean up the mess in the future."
Cummins says his party is also independant of the federal conservatives despite his being a long time MP with the party.
Among the BC Liberals at the Conservative BBQ was BC Finance minister and Deputy Premier Kevin Falcon.
