EDITOR: Christy Clark’s last stand

NDP, Greens should have a shot at governing

The not so surprising policy reversals in Thursday’s throne speech show just how far Christy Clark will go to cling to power.

The Liberal government opposed public funding for childcare for years, but now Clark says has “always been committed to childcare.”

After taking millions in corporate handouts to win elections, and voting down six bills to ban big money, Clark now says she supports political finance reform.

Her sudden change of heart will not erase 16 years of damage. It’s just an insincere strategy to bleed support from the Greens and NDP and try to repair her image.

Change is long past due in this province. Let’s let the NDP and Greens have a shot at governing together and give British Columbians what they want.
