* the province is looking into establishing foreign trade zones following a lobbying effort that involved the government's former top bureaucrat;

* a polling firm that has, in the past, been connected to Ms. Clark's campaign manager Mike McDonald, asked British Columbians what change they would most like to see the incoming premier make - just hours after she won the Liberal leadership race;
