Steelworkers Launch Hard-Hitting TV Ad on “Sell-Out” Christy Clark

VANCOUVER, 27 April 2017 – Christy Clark has spent most of this election attacking the United Steelworkers in an attempt to distract voters from her disastrous record as Premier. The United Steelworkers is launching a new hard-hitting TV ad today that takes direct aim at Christy Clark and the BC Liberals.

“In a desperate attempt to cling to power, Christy Clark is attacking the United Steelworkers. Our members are salt-of-the-earth British Columbians who do the hard work that makes our province prosper and they have been sold out by Christy Clark and the BC Liberals,” says Stephen Hunt, United Steelworkers District 3 Director.

“Her corrupt fundraising practices and salary top-up from big corporate donors have led her to abandon working families. She’s allowed a record number of log exports while hundreds of mills close and thousands of forestry workers lose their jobs. She’s signed backroom deals to allow companies to utilize temporary foreign workers instead of British Columbians in our resource industries. Christy Clark has been a disaster and we are calling her out,” says Hunt.

The ad is available for viewing at www.usw.ca/LiberalsBad4BC.
