Visiting in support of Peace River South Candidate Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier, Clark took a stab at the New Democrats, saying, “We should celebrate our resource industries, not attack them like the NDP with their job-killing policies.”

Bernier joined in, adding, “We have seen our area prosper because of the B.C. Jobs Plan. Here in the Peace we are right next to the Alberta border. Investment can leave quickly or not develop at all. The NDP threatens our future by creating a new natural gas tax.”

Both politicians highlighted the province’s plans to have at least three LNG export facilities running by 2020, supplied by northeast B.C.’s natural gas industry.

They were also joined by South Peace MLA and B.C. Reform Party leader Jack Weisgerber, who will also be touring Fort St. John and other communities with the Premier. Her visit is planned for 12:15 p.m. at MLA Pat Pimm’s campaign office at 9912 100 Avenue.
