The Liberals says the Premier isn't dodging the media she is just engaged in the meet and greet part of an election campaign.
Deputy Campaign Chair, and outgoing MLA, Colin Hansen says it is a balancing act but the media can't be there everytime the Premier meets people on the street.
Hansen even added an interesting garauntee.
"I think you will find that Premier Christy Clark will be the most accessible party leader in this campaign and I think probably if I think back over the number of campaigns that i have been involved in I expect she will be out there campaigning and meeting people more than any in recent history."
Hansen says it is a delicate balance as the media can't be there every minute.
"Sometimes in the campaign we will invite media to come along on those trips but I think you have to look at it from the perspective of the individual citizen who is maybe waiting for a bus and they suddenly get descended upon not only by the Premier and a candidate but a whole throng of media reporters as well so it can be pretty intimidating for the person waiting for the bus."
Hansen says Clark more than stacks up to NDP leader Adrian Dix when it comes to talking to the media.
"I think it is fair for me to say that she has been much more available to the media than Adrian Dix has been. There is an awful lot of questions that Adrian Dix has not provided answers to in terms of what he would do if he were to become Premier."
Clark refused to take questions a few days ago and then yesterday showed up on Broadway to shake hands with no heads up for the media.
