Congratulations to Rana Bokhari on winning the provincial Liberal leadership (Task ahead: a rebuild job that lasts, Oct. 28). She now has to deal with a multitude of challenges as she takes over a shambles of a party.

Outgoing leader Jon Gerrard leaves Bokhari a party that has a small membership, very few organized local constituencies, little (if any) provincial organization and few financial resources.

In four provincial elections, Gerrard was still finding candidates each time the election writ was dropped. And the vote total continued to drop.

One can only wish Bokhari the very best in starting from the bottom. That's all that was left for her.
