The B.C. Catholic newspaper has identified a reason for Catholic schools to celebrate Christy Clark's victory in the provincial Liberal leadership race. In a blog posting on the eve of that victory, the publication noted Ms. Clark, as education minister, made "history in 2003 when she attended the 25th Annual Catholic Educators' Conference organized by the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese. Clark was the first education minister to visit the conference since its inception in 1978, they ear after independent schools first received funding from the provincial government. At the event she recognized the quality of Catholic schools and pledged her support of independent schools."
