B.C. Liberals and NDP battle for indigenous vote

BC Liberal Leader Christy Clark has outlined how she intends to ban American thermal coal moving through the province's ports, in retaliation for the softwood lumber duties imposed last week by the Trump administration. In February, Ms. Clark apologized after accusing the NDP of hacking the BC Liberal Party website. With the last "shake-down" deal already expired due to inaction on the USA side, it was the first topic Clark brought up with newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"They don't want to live in a basement apartment, but that's all they can find", Horgan said.

Christy Clark's Liberals have mounted a largely stay-the-course campaign so far, highlighting their stewardship of Canada's top-performing economy and posting five consecutive balanced budgets.

While the Sunshine Coast resident was having lunch in North Vancouver last Thursday, Ms. Higgins realized Ms. Clark was campaigning at a nearby market and went over to speak with her.

"Under (B.C. Liberal leader) Christy Clark, B.C. has failed to address climate change", said Berman, an environmentalist.

Interviewed by The Province's Mike Smyth, Higgins said she just wanted to make a point about housing prices and health firings.

The online posts list all manner of gripes against Clark's government - everything from soaring B.C. Hydro rates to overcrowded schools to backed-up emergency rooms - all with the #IAmLinda hashtag.

"Who do people think is going to fight for them?"

Yet the BC Liberal platform released April 10 says Clark and her party are "on track to eliminate BC's operating debt by 2021". "Every day people are paying more and getting less".

"The Liberals are probably happier the Greens are so high right now", Bozinoff suggested, "because they could potentially pull that vote away from the NDP".

She said she was not an NDP member much less a "plant". Like I said, it's not about me. "It's the time when British Columbians will really tune into the campaign". "I didn't say anything remotely like that".

A new poll heading into the final week before the May 9 election - from the only pollster who predicted a B.C. Liberal win in 2013 - has both good news and bad news for B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark. "They don't know me so they are making assumptions although the assumptions have been proven wrong,"she says of her critics. So if people are setting up companies here, they start to look south and say gee, we could do this in the United States of America, pay our employees the same amount and they'd have more take-home pay".
