The political pundit, former NDP MLA, and blogger (www.strategicthoughts.com) David Schreck talks to Joseph Planta about politics in BC: the election of Christy Clark, the challenges she faces, the NDP leadership race, and more.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at THECOMMENTARY.CA.
David Schreck joins me again. The long-time political observer and pundit has appeared on this program since day 2, literally the second guest ever. There’s been much going on politically these last several weeks with more to come. John Twigg provides analysis elsewhere on this website, and David joins me now to provide his own views on the election of Christy Clark as the new leader of the BC Liberal Party, succeeding Gordon Campbell thereby soon to be British Columbia’s 35th premier. David Schreck is a former NDP MLA, as well he was a special advisor to the premier of BC in the late 1990s and the early 2000s. We’ll also look ahead to the NDP’s own leadership race, those running and more. His website is at www.strategicthoughts.com. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, David Schreck; Good morning, Mr. Schreck.
