Cabinet ministers pledge support for embattled Premier

BC Liberal cabinet ministers are pledging support for the Premier leading into an emergency cabinet meeting.

Community Minister Bill Bennett says this whole thing has been overblown by the media and the party is all on the same page.
Bennett says the Premier, Christy Clark, isn’t going anywhere, and if she does:

“I think we have a good chance of winning, and we do it with Christy Clark and I can tell you i’m not doing it with anybody else–she is our leader, I like her, I trust her, and I respect her and I’m going to war with her”.

REPORTER: “So if she goes, you’re going?”

“I’m not going to run with anyone else but Christy”.

Other members are also showing support for Clark.

House Leader Mike de Jong says he backs Clarke despite heavy criticism following a leaked plan to try and win over ethnic voters.

“Wwe have our team, we have our captain, and we’re getting ready for an important electoral process”
