Earlier, we reported CKNW host Christy Clark will be making a statement regarding her potential bid for the provincial Liberal leadership. So what was that statement? Well, just before her show wrapped up for the day, Ms. Clark told listeners she was "going to think very hard about" running to succeed Gordon Campbell. "Over the past few weeks, I've heard from people from all corners of the province and all walks of life. And I don't mind saying I've been told not to run by many people who care about me and worry about the impact that it has on my life. I've also been told not to run by some people who don't like me - yes, they actually exist. But I really haven't had time to digest all of this. It's been, quite honestly, very tough to do while I've been focusing on this job. And that's going to change after today's show."
"I have some scheduled time away from the station. And it's going to be a chance for me to collect my thoughts and my friends and my family and give this question some very serious considerations. I feel like I owe that to the people who have encouraged me to step back into the political arena. I owe it to my mom and my dad who live so strongly in my heart. And mostly, if you don't mind me saying, I think I owe it to myself because public life and media are both noble callings. And my job now, over the next week, is to decide how best to serve."
