Yesterday, speaking with reporters in Victoria, provincial Liberal leadership candidate Christy Clark suggested she might call a snap election if she becomes premier. But Ms. Clark could run into some significant opposition from her own caucus depending on the timing of that election call. The reason: legislators must serve for six years to be eligible for their pension plan. So anyone elected in 2005 and defeated in a snap election that was called before May 17 wouldn't qualify for that plan. Fancy that!
