Christy Clark unfazed by rumoured 801 movement


VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – For Christy Clark, it’s a case of, “if you’re not with us, you’re against us.”

The Liberal party boss is speaking out for the first time about a rumoured challenge to her leadership, that comes just days before BC heads to the polls.

If true, the so-called 8:01 movement would begin to push out Clark one minute after the polls close Tuesday night, should she lose the election.

The leader claims she hasn’t given reports of the internal challenge much thought, calling it a distraction from real campaign issues.

“I see it really for what it is.  These are people that want the NDP to win the next election and it is my job to stand up for the people of British Columbia.  These folks want to put their private agendas ahead of the agendas of the people and I will not allow that,” Clark explains.

She says anyone working against her, only has their own interests, not the party’s, at heart.

“People will do that.  Sometimes people will put their own personal agendas ahead of the people of the province, but I’m not going to do that, and I’m not going to let them do it either,” she says.

Clark maintains the party is fielding its strongest ever slate and remains united behind her. “You know, we are in the last five days and we’re working really, really hard.”

She calls the choices in this election the starkest in decades, and won’t let this take her energies off her ultimate goal. “This is our kids’ future and it depends on what happens May 14th.”
