Premier John Horgan released the following statement about the resignation of Christy Clark as Leader of the Official Opposition and MLA for Kelowna West, effective Aug. 4, 2017:
“Today we thank Christy Clark for her service to British Columbia.
“We take up the call of public service because we want to make this province a better place. While we represented two different political parties, Ms. Clark and I are united in the belief that, working together, we can build a better future for British Columbia and the people who call this place home.
“As an MLA and as Premier, Ms. Clark fought passionately for what she believed in. I know she will take that passion and energy to her next opportunity. I wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”
