Christy Clark

Mom. MLA for Westside-Kelowna. Premier of British Columbia.

Christy Clark was sworn in for her second term as British Columbia’s 35th Premier on June 10, 2013.

In her new mandate, Premier Clark has continued her relentless focus on strengthening the economy through the BC Jobs Plan, ensuring that government controls spending so British Columbians can invest in those they love. These efforts have resulted in BC leading the country in job creation and economic growth, with Canada’s lowest unemployment rate and a record number of British Columbians working.

Premier Clark brought the anti-bullying “Pink Shirt Campaign” to British Columbia to raise awareness of issues related to bullying in our schools, workplace and communities.

It's important for young women to see other women in politics and government.
