VICTORIA — Kamloops' two BC Liberal MLAs were sworn in at the BC Legislature in Victoria this morning.

Todd Stone is representing Kamloops-South Thompson for a second term, and Peter Milobar is a rookie MLA representing Kamloops-North Thompson.

Milobar says being sworn in as an MLA is similar to being sworn in as Kamloops mayor - something that happened three times - but different.

"Obviously a great honour being selected to represent Kamloops-North Thompson. The history and the pageantry of the building of the Legislature really strikes you as you are sitting in the house getting sworn in. Very special day for sure," said Milobar.

The legislature will be recalled one week from today.

Milobar says while he would have preferred to be part of a majority government, these are historic times for BC, and he and Stone are prepared to serve in either government or opposition.
