The Scott Ross: Christy Clark Is Unstoppable

Christy Clark is unstoppable.

She became Liberal Leader with only the support of one MLA. Members of her caucus criticized her. 17 of them fearing defeat didn’t run for re-election. Practically every pundit and journalist thought Clark was going to lose and so did every single polling firm. But last night she won.

The Scott Ross: Christy Clark Loses & So Does Gender Equality

Christy Clark had as much chance of winning BC’s election today as Canadian politics has gender equality, and that’s close to zero.
