Prince George, B.C.- In the wake of the announcement from Christy Clark that she is stepping down from her role as leader and from her post as MLA, the BC Liberal Party will soon start working towards finding a new leader.
The Party has issued notice the Party Executive will now meet within 28 days to set the rules for a leadership election process.
Clark made the announcement this morning, saying she will step down as of August 4th.
The NDP Government has six months to call a by-election in her Kelowna-West riding.
It was expected we could have a snap fall election if the coalition fails. Stepping down with a week’s notice and no new elected leader in place is the height of irresponsibility IMO.
It does make it tough on the party, sure hope they get a new leader in quick.
Five consecutive balanced budgets, leading Canada in job and economic growth. Not too shabby considering other parties and premiers.
Claimed balanced budgets, crown corporations have been bleeding money, but were moved out of the budget to hide their losses. On top of that BC is going to be in the red for years to pay for site C. She is quitting as an MLA after repeatedly saying she was going to represent her constituency and now leaves the province more strongly in the hands of the NDP. She has abandoned ship and left the liberals in the lurch to protect her own name. Wait for her to get a high paying job with a company before her own party would start hauling out skeletons.
