Christy Clark to close out campaign in Abbotsford Monday

May 09, 2017, 07:35

- The Liberal Party of British Columbia is not affiliated with the Liberal Party of Canada and describes itself as "a made-in-B.C. free enterprise coalition".

The B.C. Liberals have attempted to make Horgan's schedule a campaign issue, highlighting the fact that he hasn't visited northwest B.C. or the Kootenays.

That's because B.C. NDP leader John Horgan has promised to "use every tool in the toolbox" to stop the project which is expected to start construction in September.

Tuesday's election is promising to be a nail-biter, with a new poll pegging support for Christy Clark's Liberals and John Horgan's NDP at a tie going into the vote. However, with up to 16 percent of registered voters still undecided, the winning party on election night will be the one who can incentivize the most voters to show up to the polls.

- Weaver criticized Liberal Leader Christy Clark for bringing U.S. President Donald Trump's name into the campaign by portraying herself as the best positioned to fight American tariffs on softwood lumber, calling it "vote buying and staging for the cameras".

Aaron Mueller, a teacher-librarian at Parkland Secondary School in North Saanich, accused Clark of refusing to engage with anyone but party supporters and donors.

Clark's team says the Liberal leader has logged more than 12,500 kilometres on this election campaign - more than last election - visiting 50 different communities. The Greens are the party on the rise (up 3 points from 14%), while the Liberals have seen the most decline (down 4 points from 43%).

Clark campaigned from dusk to dawn, starting Monday in Richmond, then flying to Sidney and Courtenay (where the Liberals hope to retain one of their two Island seats), and finishing the marathon in Hope and Abbotsford. "We haven't had any support from the B.C. Liberal government".

"I can't recall an election where the elites have mattered less than this election campaign", Horgan said. Horgan made the most of it, later Tweeting: "Less anxious about my bus and more concerned about British Columbians getting stuck with four more years of Christy Clark".
