Christy Clark Resigns As B.C. Liberal Leader

Christy Clark – former Premier of British Columbia – has resigned as leader of the B.C. Liberal Party.

Her resignation will be effective as of August 4th.

Clark’s resignation in her own words:

“Serving as premier and serving the people of British Columbia for the past six and a half years has been an incredible honour and privilege. I am so proud of everything our B.C. Liberal team has accomplished. I am certain that British Columbia’s best days lie ahead. Because British Columbians can, through hard work, determination, and perseverance, achieve anything they set their minds to.”

Clark’s resignation comes after her party came up one seat short of a majority, and fell to a NDP-Green coalition.

She leaves behind a mixed legacy in B.C., having overseen relatively strong economic growth that increasingly benefited a small percentage of the population while rising home prices and the cost of living caused difficulties for millions of B.C. residents.

There were also concerns of undue corporate influence over the actions of the government.

  1. “There were also concerns of undue corporate influence over the actions of the government.”

    There may have been,but now we are about to see the influence of public service Unions and radical environmentalists on the actions of government.

    In his first week,Horgan-Weaver has halted LNG,Kinder Morgan,and made it obvious he intends to cancel the already started Site “C”. Only the probability of massive lawsuits might keep him from cancelling Site C. The NDP are big on not honoring contracts.

    Back in the glorious ’90’s,the NDP halted a legally approved project with all permits in place,Carrier Lumber’s plan to clearcut the mountain pine beetle infested areas of the Cariboo.
    The NDP stopped the project in violation of their contract. Carrier sued and won,cost to taxpayers was over 170 million dollars.The trial judge said it was the worst case of government malfeasance he had ever seen in his career.

    That’s what the NDP do, destroy Provinces with their ideology based governance, and B.C. is about to learn that lesson,AGAIN!
