'I'm not interested': Kelowna MP Tracy Gray slams former Premier Christy Clark

Gray fires salvo at Clark

Kelowna-Lake Country MP Tracy Gray doesn’t care what former Premier Christy Clark thinks about the federal Conservative party.

On Thursday, Clark endorsed Jean Charest in the party’s leadership race while declaring the Conservative Party of Canada is racing “for the extremes to play to the very edges of the political divide.”

Gray, along most other MPs in the party, have lined up behind apparent frontrunner Pierre Poilievre.

“Those of us from BC remember Clark for supporting Canada's first carbon tax, crushing small business, making car insurance among the most expensive in Canada and calling people dinosaurs who disagreed with her,” Gray tweeted on Friday.

“Forgive me if I'm not interested in her views on Conservative politics.”

Gray, like Poilievre, was a supporter of the protest convoy that took over downtown Ottawa earlier this year. She is serving at the co-chair for Poilievre’s campaign in B.C.

The B.C. Liberal Party, which Clark led from 2011 to 2017, has no affiliation to the federal Liberal party and occupies the right opposing the NDP in provincial politics.
