SBT050: From humble beginnings to Premier of B.C., Christy Clark gets candid about her son, her foray into politics and the power of being underestimated
Dec 12 16
After over two decades in politics, Premier Christy Clark has learned that to survive the political arena you have to let go of your need to be liked because you cannot please everybody. Winning her first elected role in 1996, Christy served as an MLA from 1996 to 2005, serving as Deputy Minister from 2001 to 2005. In 2005, she took a break from politics to spend time with her son. It was during this time that she joined CKNW and started The Christy Clark Show, which ended up winning the national Peter Gzowski Award in 2008. After six years on air, she decided to return to politics, but this time it would be on her own terms. I’m just going to try and be me and be truthful to myself about what I want to do, and if people don’t like it, that’s OK. Fortunately for Christy, people ended up liking her. In 2011, she re-entered the legislature after winning a by-election and in 2013 she was elected in her first general election as the Premier of British Columbia. In May 2017, she will run again, and if elected, she will be the first woman in Canadian history to ever be re-elected as Premier. In today’s interview, you’ll learn: Why Christy used to spend some mornings getting ready for work at a hockey rink. Why she thinks that women need to let go of trying to be perfect. Why she would like more women to pursue a career in politics. How being Premier has impacted her relationships.
