Attention apathetic BC citizens:  do you still think that politics and voting don’t matter??  Be sure to check yourself for whiplash after reading these Clark remarks.

Justine Hunter in the Globe and Mail offers a long view of what may be the BC Liberals’ longer view.  Facing almost certain quick defeat in the BC Legislature, the as-yet Clark Liberals may be releasing their platform, in fact already campaigning for the next election. Apparently, the L-G has the option to call one following the new Clark gov’t’s impending defeat, depending, one presumes, on how persuasive the Horgan-Weaver team will be about their ability to muster confidence votes in the longer term.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark says she is ready to present a new urban-minded agenda for her government as she prepares for a likely defeat in the House later this month – including measures that promise to end a long-running feud with Metro Vancouver mayors over transit funding. . . .

. . . The Liberals lost a net total of six seats across Metro Vancouver in the May 9 election, costing them their majority.

Ms. Clark said on Monday she has absorbed a message from voters who turned away from her party: “We’re investing in supporting an urban agenda that’s going to make our cities the most livable in the world. You’ll see that in the Throne Speech, that’s the government’s chance to set out for British Columbians where we want to take the province.”
