Protestors stand for Site C during Clark’s visit

Premier Christy Clark visited The Laurel Packinghouse Tuesday night

Not everyone was clapping and cheering during Premier Christy Clark’s visit to Kelowna.

The Premier was greeted at The Laurel Packinghouse, Tuesday night by supporters as she gave a speech about Kelowna, the leaders debate and standing against Trump’s lumber tax.

“This province is built on hard work in the resource sector and I’m so disappointed this week when John Horgan stood with a supporter who called British Columbia’s foundational industries in the resource sector; forestry, mining, oil and gas… he called them dinosaur industries,” said Clark.

She then took a stance against Donald Trump.

“Here we have facing perilous times just south of the border, a Donald Trump America that is fighting hard for American jobs… whose going to fight for Canadian jobs?” she said she would take a stand against Trump’s policies to protect Canadian jobs.

“British Columbia needs a fighter,” she said.

Three protesters held signs against the Site C Dam.

Protester Fae Shaw said she would like to speak with Clark about some facts on the dam.

“Site C has never had proper review… we could do better with clean alternatives,” she said. “This is going to cost us.”

Shaw lives in the Kelowna-Mission riding and said she feels like Clark hasn’t heard what her riding has been saying.

“She didn’t show up at her constituents riding. There’s people that care about Site C.”

Clark was not answering questions from the media Tuesday night.
