Christy Clark to walk-away with hefty pension: Canadian Taxpayers Federation

Christy Clark resigns as Liberal Party leader Former BC premier Christy Clark says she intends to resign
Andrew Cummings | 09 August, 2017, 00:22

When asked, Coleman said Clark had the support of caucus and it was her decision alone to resign.

"It's one thing to say that when you're still the premier, but when the reality hits, obviously the feelings change it's either the reality of being opposition leader hits and it hurts", Telford said. It may have taken her a while to get there but she did the right thing in the end.

Her four-year term was marked by steady growth, strong economic performance and consecutive balanced budgets, but the LNG promises never materialized.

McCain's very presence, along with his rebellious vote, were principled acts of personal and political courage, hardly surprising from a man who survived years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam and then returned home to dedicate the rest of his life to public service.

Clark had said she would say on as opposition leader.

"I am certain that British Columbia's best days lie ahead", she said. "I am so proud of everything our BC Liberal Team has accomplished", Clark said in a statement Friday.

In Clark's case, she made herself accountable for her failure to return the B.C. Liberals to power.

"I think all of these things confronted her and she decided it would be to announce early, rather than hang on".

He said the new government should revise MLA pension plans introduced 10 years ago by the BC Liberals.

Former Premier Christy Clark announced her resignation as leader of the BC Liberals on Friday, sending shockwaves through the provincial political landscape.

Liberal caucus members praised Ms. Clark on Friday, but the party will now face the necessity of picking a new leader to face the BC NDP government.

"A highlight of my time in the Legislature was working directly with Christy Clark to implement sexualized violence policy legislation for BC's post-secondary institutions".

She wrote that she loves the party and the province "with all my heart", and reiterated that it was an honour to lead both during her time as premier. This experience illustrated what we can achieve when members of this house work together.

Of those who had said they would prefer to see Clark replaced, 53 per cent of them had actually voted for the Liberals in May's election. "I wish Christy Clark well in her future pursuits and look forward to developing a productive relationship with the next Leader of the BC Liberal Party".

She thanked her supporters, saying the party will need them in the coming months and years.

"She's the greatest person I've ever worked for", Coleman told a small group of local reporters outside the Penticton Lakeside Resort where the BC Liberal caucus had been meeting since Wednesday.
