Christy Clark's positions on issues before and after 2017 election no different than 2011/2013: Karma Sutra and Flip Flop

Now that the campaign is over, however, it is Premier Christy Clark who appears to be pivoting in a new direction on the future of oil pipelines across B.C. - Justine Hunter

 Bill Tielemann: Cast, rats, prevaricators & The Kama Sutra
B.C. Liberal Party leadership candidate George Abbott accuses opponent Christy Clark of doing the “Kama Sutra” with her various positions on how she would handle the Harmonized Sales Tax.
"Thank goodness she moved away from that position because I think a five-minute discussion with almost anyone in this province would have told her that was an ill-informed position to be taking,"

Falcon said. "I think there is a little bit of a 'ready, fire, aim' approach that's sort of taking place," Falcon added in also criticizing Clark’s suggestions that she would hold a snap election after becoming premier and add a new public holiday in February.

"You can't be making these kinds of public commitments without discussing it with anyone," he said.


Christy Clark got one week into a byelection campaign when she realized she had a problem - that monstrous pay hikes she earlier approved for political staffers in Victoria.

Clark suddenly backed down Wednesday on the raises - which saw maximum salaries for some staff positions jump by as much as 60 per cent - as a byelection backlash grew in her new political stomping grounds of Kelowna.

"I'm the premier and I'm fixing it," Clark said, announcing most of the raises would be rescinded.
