MLA Rich Coleman selected Interim Leader of the BC Liberals

Former British Columbia premier Christy Clark will resign as leader of the provincial Liberal party.

Clark's resignation as leader, and MLA for Kelowna West is effective August 4, and comes after the Liberals were knocked down to opposition status, after losing a confidence vote to an NDP-Green Party coalition.

Clark, 51, led a come-from-behind victory in 2013, sweeping her party to a surprise win over the New Democrats.

Coleman praised Clark's record as premier and said she "saved the party" during a challenging 2013 election. "Totalling we think about a grand total of $1.7 million by age 80", said Scott Hennig. She launched her leadership bid with a "family-first agenda" and was elected leader on the third ballot with 52 per cent of the vote over former Health Minister Kevin Falcon's 48 per cent.

The announcement was unexpected, according to Ashton, coming out as the B.C. Liberal caucus met in Penticton.

"I am certain that British Columbia's best days lie ahead".

"She was struggling with what she wanted to do".

He said the new government should revise MLA pension plans introduced 10 years ago by the BC Liberals.

Taylor Swift to testify in DJ groping case
He was invited to the June 2, 2013 meet-and-greet as part of his job, and that is where the alleged groping incident took place. A member of Swift's staff called Mueller's boss at radio station KYGO and asked that the station "take appropriate action".

Meanwhile, the vacant seat for the B.C. Liberals means the ruling NDP-Greens are no longer in danger of a non-confidence vote in the B.C. Legislature.

"I thought that she would stick around, see if the NDP can pass a couple of budgets", the University of the Fraser Valley professor said. During that time, she brought in a number of changes, including tearing up key provisions in teachers' contracts regarding class size and composition.

In addition to resigning her party leadership, Clark also gave up her seat in Kelowna-West.

Letnick acknowledged Clark had her detractors as is normal within a partisan political system, but hoped those of all political stripes would be able to say thank you to someone who devoted "a good part of her life and time away from her son", to improve the lives of British Columbians.

As for who may take over as leader of the party, Moscrop noted Sam Sullivan and Andrew Wilkinson could be vying for the job but there is a chance a federal conservative could throw their hat into the ring. This experience illustrated what we can achieve when members of this house work together.

"A highlight of my time in the Legislature was working directly with Christy Clark to implement sexualized violence policy legislation for BC's post-secondary institutions".

While the leadership campaign and convention details get sorted out by the party executive, the BC Liberals are staying on task with their opposition duties, Shypitka said. "You don't need to look any further to what she did for this remarkable province and we are the best province in all of Canada".
