“When you start talking about the economy, and people having good, strong, high paying jobs, that’s the number one thing they want,” he says. “They don’t want to have a whole lot of discussion about a bunch of deficit budgets for years and years and years to come. That’s what Premier Christy Clark is bringing to this province and that’s why we’ve changed the polls so dramatically.”
Although the polls had been predicting a B.C. NDP majority government, it’s now been called a Liberal majority. Pimm says that’s incredibly important in ensuring a successful future for the province.
“It’s a huge issue for us in the North Peace. We know that we have to have the LNG projects, we know we have to get the pipelines built, we know we have to export our natural gas to the Asian marketplace, and the importance around that is astronomical.”
With many thanks to his family, supporters and the general public, Pimm says he’s happy to be finished with a successful campaign.
“It’s been a long couple of months,” he admits. “It’s an awful big task that you put your name in for.”
