Not good news for Premier Christy Clark.
“There’s a lot of people who voted for the BC Liberals who seem to be a little bit upset that this is happening.”
That’s Mario Canseco of Insights West, talking about a poll that’s found 66% of respondents think the Premier’s $50,000-a-year salary top up is NOT justified.
And it wasn’t just NDP or Conservative or Green supporters who are opposed.
“But when we asked those who voted for the Liberals, more than half of them say it’s something that should end before the next election rolls around, they should really do something to stop this type of thing from happening and I think they do see it as a political liability for the Premier.
66% of the 802 British Columbians questioned think the Premier should end the practice.
