Christy Clark's baffling campaign

A couple of items last week raised questions about Christy Clark’s campaign positions.
Over at, Jody Paterson reprints a Clark release on the role of non-profits and comments:.

“Here’s Christy Clark on…what, exactly? I do quite a bit of work with the non-profit sector and am familiar with the initiatives she mentions here, but I still couldn’t make heads or tails out of what the Liberal leadership candidate was actually saying in this news release.”

And Les Leyne of the Times Colonist tried to puzzle out what Clark was actually saying about the HST referendum. Her explanations were nearly incomprehensible. His conclusion was summed up by the column’s headline.

“One flaw in Clark’s HST plan: It’s nuts”

Kevin Falcon’s promise to solve Victoria’s traffic congestion – something he never paid any attention to in five years as transportation minister – also gets a look in the Times Colonist, in an editorial.

Meanwhile, an important and concrete commitment from George Abbott hasn’t got much attention.
Abbott has pledged to bring in civilian oversight for the RCMP.
More significantly, he’s also said the current RCMP policing contract should be extended for two years to ensure that the oversight actually happens and is included in the agreement. He also says the delay in signing a new 20-year deal would allow recommendations from the inquiry into the missing women case to be included in the contract.
The government seems intent on rushing into a new long-term commitment; Abbott offers a smarter, more responsible course.
His release is here.
