BC Liberal leader Christy Clark is stressing jobs on her first stop on the final day of campaigning for the election, at the Cargo Jet Airways terminal at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond.
She accuses the BC NDP of giving up on jobs, especially those they don’t respect, and says they are giving up home ownership to give $1-a-day in a rent rebate.
In what might be a last minute pitch to undecided voters, Clark says in the face of the Trump administration B.C. needs a strong government willing to fight for jobs.

As for Monday’s polls, which suggest it will be an extremely close race, Clark says it’s time to get out of the prediction business and leave it to the voters.
“I think it’s time we all get out of the business of predicting elections, because the only people who decided an election are the people who vote, and they will make that decision for us.”
Clark added she’s not really paying attention to the polls.
“I will make this prediction: After this election, when all of the polls are wrong, yet again, you guys are still going to believe in polls and I’m not. So that is my one election prediction.”
She says she hopes her message of job creation sticks with voters on Tuesday.
