KAMLOOPS — This morning, John Horgan became the third BC party leader to visit Kamloops in the past four days.

The NDP leader rallied with supporters at Riverside Park, talking about failures in the province's health care system under the Liberal government.

Horgan committed to building the planned Patient Care Tower at Royal Inland Hospital.

"In Kamloops, we're going to carry forward the patient tower at (Royal) Inland Hospital, we're going to make sure that facility is up and running as quickly as possible. We're going to make sure there are urgent care centres to fill the gap between the walk-in clinics that are closing and the emergency rooms that are clogged," said Horgan.

"It's a plan that will work, it's a plan that is focused on people, and I just can't wait to get started."

Last night, Liberal Leader Christy Clark held a rally at Sandman Centre, saying the Liberals wouldn't let Horgan decimate the province's resource and tech sectors.

Green Party Leader Andrew Weaver came to Kamloops on Saturday.
