It's not often one gets a do-over. Let's do it right this time and get B.C.'s carbon pollution under control.
This change of heart has even the most experienced political analysts scratching their heads and trying to figure out what exactly the Liberals end game in all of this is.
Under the Liberals, B.C.'s land mass hasn't changed, but the number of protected ridings sure has.
The B.C. Liberals' re-election strategy was to campaign, as they say, "from the right," by touting their record on jobs and economic prosperity.

Clark’s opponents released her schedule ahead of the May 9 election.
