BC Premier Christy Clark & Liberal MLAs on Vaisakhi Day in Vancouver South
Plenty of British Columbia politicians showed up at the South Asian Vaisakhi Day celebration on April 16, 2011. They include BC Premier Christy Clark who introduced her Liberal MLAs – Richard Lee, Margaret MacDiarmid, Harry Bloy, John Yap, Doug Horne, Rob Howard, Iain Black and Moira Stilwell. Prime Minister Stephen Harper also campaigned in Vancouver in the middle of a Federal Election and made a stop at the Vaisakhi celebration site on Main & 50th Ave. Mr. Harper made a speech to the thousands of Indo-Canadians who gathered there and caused quite a commotion.
Premier Clark won the Liberal Party leadership race on Feb 26, 2011 but currently does not hold a seat in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia in Vitoria BC. Clark previously represented the ridings of Port Moody-Westwood and Port Moody-Burnaby Mountain between 1996 and 2005 and was Deputy Premier at one time. Clark is seeking to be elected to re-enter the legislature in a May 11 by election in Point Grey, a riding held by the former Premier Gordon Campbell who Clark succeeded.
