Liberal's interim leader cut up at Clark's sudden departure

Christy Clark resigns as Liberal Party leader

One month after a confidence vote ended the BC Liberals 16-year reign of the province, its leader has announced she'll be stepping down.

"Her leadership and willingness to work across party lines on this vital issue has made universities and colleges across this province safer for our students - and for this I am grateful", he said in an emailed statement.

She said she informed her caucus colleagues about her decision to leave as leader effective August 4.

Such a prospect has unnerved investors in Canada's third-most populous province, not least owners of oil and gas projects such as Kinder Morgan Inc's C$7.4 billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which the New Democratic Party (NDP) has vowed to halt.

Ms. Clark led the party into a spring election - her second as premier - which reduced the party to a minority. Judith Guichon she tried to convince Guichon to call an election.

"I think she'd become a very polarizing figure and I think there's a sense that perhaps the campaign was out of touch with where people were back in May". "I wish her and her family the very best".

All calls to the Kelowna-West constituency association of the B.C. Liberals were directed to the B.C. Liberal communications department who were unable to explain how the association would proceed with nominations for the vacant seat.

"I am certain that British Columbia's best days lie ahead".

The MLA for Langley East since 1996 who hails originally from Penticton, Coleman said he will not challenge for the party's leadership. Her final accomplishment, however, was the courage to step down, certainly not when or how she wanted to but when it was the responsible thing to do. A last minute shift in policy to include key points laid out in election platforms of both the BC NDP and BC Greens did nothing to alter public perception following the throne speech, which paved the road for a non-confidence vote. If you have any concerns about what you see in comments, email the editor in the link above. All 44 NDP and Green MLAs voted together, against 43 Liberals, in favour of a motion put forward by NDP Leader John Horgan. During that time, she brought in a number of changes, including tearing up key provisions in teachers' contracts regarding class size and composition. She also will quit her Kelowna-area seat.

He said Elections BC is already putting the gears in motion. "You look at her record, top in economic growth in the country, leading job numbers, a Triple A credit rating coming out of the recession, and giving us the flexibility to invest in key programs in our area".

The liberals have to set a date for a leadership vote within the next month.
