British Columbia Premier Christy Clark has issued an apology and launched a review after a leaked document showed her government planned to win ethnic votes with provincial resources.
Clark says the leaked document didn't recognize there are lines that cannot be crossed in conducting outreach and some of the recommendations are absolutely inappropriate.
In a statement, Clark says she wants to sincerely apologize to British Columbians.
The opposition NDP released documents out of the premier's office that proposed to woo the ethnic vote with the use of the multiculturalism ministry.
The document was written by Clark's deputy chief of staff and sent to the personal email addresses of eight people.
Clark has appointed her deputy minister to conduct a review to make sure no government resources were inappropriately used.
