BC Liberals to air 30-minute program next Sunday on Global TV

Voters head to the polls on May 14 and election campaigns are ramping up.

Premier Christy Clark is hoping she and her team have concocted the right mix of words and images in a TV program to be broadcast Sunday

Voters in British Columbia will get a look at the B.C. Liberals election platform, if they want to spend part of next weekend in front of the television watching the Liberal campaign kick off in earnest.

The party announced a 30-minute television program, called “Strong Economy. Secure Tomorrow.”, will be broadcast on Global TV at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 14.

“This program will kick off our campaign by talking in detail about the plans and vision Today’s BC Liberals will be sharing with British Columbians,” said campaign director Mike McDonald in a press release. “With all the economic risk surrounding B.C., it’s never been more important that leaders provide straight-forward, direct information to voters.”

The program will also be available online after the broadcast during the election period.

The release stated Premier Christy Clark, “everyday British Columbians” and community leaders will be featured in the program.

“It’s also a matter of basic respect for voters to outline our priorities and policies — we hope the NDP will change course and do the same,” McDonald continued. “The choice belongs to B.C. voters and we look forward to comparing our vision, our plan, and our team to the NDP during the campaign.”
