VICTORIA – There is only one true measure of climate leadership: Are your carbon emissions going up, or are they going down? Under Premier Christy Clark they have grown steadily and are on track to grow more.
Here is the undeniable evidence that shows how Christy Clark is making B.C. a climate failure:
Emissions have gone up, not down
VICTORIA – In this year’s B.C. Budget, Christy Clark increased disability rates for the first time in nine years, then clawed back most of the increase by cancelling free bus passes for people with disabilities. Christy Clark is simply giving with one hand, and taking with the other.
Christy Clark and her supporters are the only ones who seem to think they didn’t cancel the free bus pass program.
VICTORIA – Despite what Premier Clark would like people to think, under her leadership the B.C. Liberal government has abandoned action to combat climate change. That’s not surprising when she leads a B.C. Liberal caucus that isn’t united on whether climate change is even real.
Here are just a few examples of how the Liberal government under Premier Clark have failed on climate change.
VANCOUVER – A string of broken promises leading to the release of the new liquor pricing system in B.C. makes for a tough April Fools’ joke for many retailers, producers and consumers of liquor in B.C.

Premier Christy Clark’s two most-senior and highest-paid appointees are contradicting each other about who was responsible for firing seven health researchers and smearing them by saying they were subjects of an RCMP investigation.
One of those Clark deputy ministers must not be telling the truth. One of her deputy ministers is preventing us from knowing who terminated these researchers and why.
The premier must require her appointees to give evidence under oath so that the researchers, their families and British Columbians can finally get the truth.
