Christy Clark speaks at event
The 2014 BC Liberal convention covered a lot of ground in policy and was stoked up by an afternoon speech given by leader Christy Clark today.
The convention was said to be the biggest in recent history, and over 1200 delegates filled the grand ballroom at the Delta Grand hotel.
The delegate guide outlined 61 resolutions for discussion in the afternoon after a morning of activity regarding the party name and campaign discussions. Delegates voted on the resolutions which included everything from a Prosperity Fund to stronger punishment for distracted drivers.
Other policy issues covered taxes, competition in the limo industry, addressing poverty, shingles vaccines for seniors and 60 other items.
Christy Clark's speech focused on rousing the crowd and taking jabs at the NDP. Clark avoided all political issues other than the underlying LNG message.
Party delegates also endorsed Clark with a massive 98.8 per cent support for the leadership.
"This is our opportunity to write the pages of the book that will be British Columbia's history," she said.
