After saying she felt no need to offer another apology to people attending the inaugural BC-India Global Business Forum, in the wake of the ethnic vote scandal, Premier Christy Clark is urging New Democrats -- now facing accusations of creating an election slush fund -- to follow her lead.
"When people asked if there was an issue with mis-spending public money for partisan purposes on the government side of the house, I said, we're going to get to the bottom of it, we're going to fix it. That's leadership and I think the NDP should do exactly the same thing. They should look deeply into it. They should get to the bottom of it. They should take responsibility for it and they should fix it."
Clark says she hasn't seen the Auditor General's report indicating the NDP used constituency funds for political purposes.
The New Democrats insist no rules were broken, but they claim the fund has now been shut down.
