"It's time for a new person to lead. I am asking the party to move as quickly as possible to organize a leadership convention. I intend to ensure a smooth and orderly transition. My goal is to return public attention to what is important to British Columbians - their jobs, their families and how government can best support them.
"That is what the decision on the HST was all about. I hope that my announcement today will allow British Columbians to move forward and fully consider the HST and the alternative on their merits between now and September 2011. - Premier Gordon Campbell
Okay, Christy Clark is the Premier, and she is oh so different than Gordon Campbell.... or is she?
Gordon's goal by resigning was to have the public attention move to focus on what is important to British Columbians, like JOBS, FAMILIES and how best the government can support them.
Christy's goal appears to be EXACTLY the same as Gordon's.
Can it be said though, that the secretive decision (not on our Radar) by Gordon and Colin on the HST was all about JOBS, FAMILIES and how the government can best support them? Did anything change while the candidates for the BC Liberal's top job was up for grabs? Did anything change after Christy won, and continued on with her leadership election promises of FAMILIES FIRST and JOBS?
Christy continued to promote Gordon Campbell's vision of the HST. A majority of voters had their own idea about the HST.
It would appear then that everything that drove Gordon Campbell from HIS Office of the Premiership, are exactly the same things that Christy Clark is using to promote her stay today. Doesn't make sense.

look for resigns
Where I'm different is having brought families to the centre of the agenda," she said. "We're talking about how important families are and the valuable role that they play in communities."
Two: "We've been talking a lot about jobs and enabling the creation of jobs across the province - which is a different economic focus than my predecessor had." ????????
Three: "I think we have made some big strides in open government."
