VICTORIA – The race to replace B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell heats up significantly Thursday with Education Minister George Abbott officially joining the contest flanked by at least a dozen members of the current Liberal caucus.
Sources close to Health Minister Kevin Falcon and former Liberal cabinet minister Christy Clark say the two political veterans are seriously close to joining Abbott and former Liberal cabinet minister Moira Stilwell…
Sources also said former Liberal cabinet minister Christy Clark, who left politics in 2005 after two terms in the Liberal government, is poised to enter the race, with an announcement expected soon.
Clark is currently working as a CKNW radio hotline host in Vancouver, where many of her daily topics deal with dissecting the mysteries of B.C. politics.
