Premier Christy Clark is panning the idea she could be the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.
“I have a big job here in British Columbia.”
The Canadian Press reported on Tuesday that Clark’s name was tossed around as a possible successor to Stephen Harper.
But Clark laughed off the suggestion.
“I have always seen my role as to fight for B.C., fight for jobs here, fight for people here, and I intend to keep giving this 100 per cent to of my attention.”
Other names being tossed around to take over leadership of the federal Conservatives include Defence Minister Jason Kenney and Toronto city councillor Doug Ford.
Clark was known to have a good relationship with outgoing Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
They were even spotted together at hockey games. So, what about Trudeau?
“I’m pretty sure he likes hockey. I’d be happy to sit down with him again. My focus is, whoever is in government Ottawa I have a job to do for the people of British Columbia, and that is to work with them.”
Clark says it appears Trudeau shares some of her same main priorities, like infrastructure funding, pointing to billions her government has invested.
