Summary

Christy Clark hasn't spoken to the media since the provincial election results were confirmed last week

Green Party leader and NDP boss were seen hanging out this past weekend

VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) – While we all wait for the leader of the BC Greens to decide which party his three MLA’s will support in BC’s new minority government, Premier Christy Clark is not making any public appearances.

In fact, since election results were confirmed last Wednesday, she has only released videos via social media.

The latest one was posted on Twitter where she had a message for British Columbians in a 48-second video. “I know there’s a lot of uncertainty about what’s going to happen with the government and who will be in government. But I want you to know that when we look through each other’s platforms, at least when I do, I see a lot of things that we have in common that we can work on together. But I also know that if we can come to an agreement with other parties in the Legislature for four years of stability that it’s going to be a deal, not with political parties, but it’s a deal with you.”

She goes on to talk about how British Columbians voted on May 9th for things to be done differently. “And I want to make sure that any agreement we come to reflects what you want because we want to make sure we do things differently in British Columbia. A new deal, not for politicians, not for the Legislature, but a new deal for British Columbians.”

Green Party Leader Andrew Weaver has promised to make a decision by this Wednesday as to which party he will side with.

Over the weekend, Weaver was seen watching a rugby match with BC NDP Leader John Horgan in Victoria, although the pair claimed they didn’t talk about politics.
