Wednesday radio host Christy Clark announced her intention to run for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party (and thus potentially becoming Premier without winning a general election). She does not hold a seat in the legislature, supports the HST, and her brother was investigated by the RCMP in the controversial BC rail investigation. Her brother Bruce was also one of the main fundraisers in BC for Paul Martin's leadership campaign. Gordon Campbell was always said to be a friend to the federal Tories, Christy Clark is most certainly not.
She is not like one of the "BC Liberals" who are also federal Conservatives. There is nothing wrong with that from her perspective, if she is an honest Liberal then she may as well run for the provincial Liberals. The biggest problem for her candidacy is that the provincial Liberals rely on a large majority of federal Tory voters to defeat the pinko communist kooks at the NDP. Christy Clark is not going to do well among federal Conservatives, which is great news for the fledgling BC Conservative Party (which has yet to run a full slate of candidates) and the NDP.
And her radio show is extremely annoying. I listen to that network quite often because they carry Adler Online, but as soon as I hear Christy's voice, I am very quick to change the station. CKNW used to air Adler in the afternoon, until they bumped him back to nights and gave Christy an afternoon show.
