Premier Christy Clark made the following statement on Prime Minister Stephen Harper's visit to British Columbia:
"I am delighted that Prime Minister Harper will visit British Columbia today for an official signing of the Seaspan contract. The awarding of this contract to a British Columbia firm represents a major step forward in implementing Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan. This contract is a great example of a fair and transparent federal procurement process, and an even better example of British Columbia's business rising to the challenge of a major competition.
"I am travelling in northern British Columbia today and not able to join the Prime Minister at the signing. But I send my best wishes to everyone in attendance, and I look forward to many years of productive work ahead."
