ELECTION – Clark makes quick stop in Kamloops, then it’s back on the bus

BC Liberal leader Christy Clark was in Kamloops today (April 14, 2017) for a campaign rally at the Library Square campaign office of Kamloops-North Thompson candidate Peter Milobar before hopping back on her campaign bus. She called Milobar “the best mayor Kamloops has had… since Terry Lake.” She focused her comments on personal tax cuts and jobs.

…. Milobar had an embarrassing sign moment this week when a resident tweeted a photo of one of his campaign signs on City property, which is a no-no. The mayor-on-leave quickly apologized and said the sign would be removed.

…. Elsewhere, Prince George-Valemount incumbent Shirley Bond probably wishes her campaign team hadn’t planted one of her signs right beside a “School Closed” sign.

…. Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed the news that the UBC Board of Governors accepted the school’s new sexual assault policy. Weaver introduced legislation, the Sexual Violence and Misconduct Act, in April 2016, which was later adopted into law by the B.C. government. “I am glad to hear that UBC finally will finally have a sexual assault policy,” said Weaver. “Our aim as a society should be a world that is safe for everyone.”
