CAMPBELL RIVER, - With just three days of campaigning left, B.C. Premier Christy Clark says her Liberals are gaining momentum.

Clearly buoyed by some polls that show her closing what was deemed by some at the outset as an insurmountable gap with her New Democrat rival, Adrian Dix, Clark started her day in a Vancouver Island riding that hasn't sent a Liberal to Victoria in 12 years.

A convoy of logging trucks, semi-trailers and dump trucks greeted the Liberal leader at a morning rally in Campbell River, in the North Island riding, where about 200 people showed up to hear her speak in an airport hangar.

The Liberal leader offered oft-repeated warnings about the area's future under a New Democrat government.

She continued to hammer home her relentless message that only the B.C. Liberals can secure the natural resource industry growth that will fuel the provincial economy.

Clark is planning campaign stops today in Abbotsford and Surrey, in ridings that weren't Liberal when the British Columbia campaign began but where she believes her incumbent party stands a chance when voters cast ballots next Tuesday.

Dix is spending the day visiting Metro Vancouver ridings.
