Premier Christy Clark began rolling out her jobs plan for British Columbia today. But she appears to be doing so ass backwards. According to a government bulletin, it will be three more days before that plan is formally released. In the meantime, the premier has started publicizing its specifics, which includes supporting the province's liquid natural gas industry and providing $15 million worth of funding to expand Ridley Island's terminal capacity. This cart-before-the-horse approach could give the opposition and the media an opportunity to frame the plan before the premier has a chance to fulsomely do that herself.
