Andrew MacLeod of The Tyee spoke to Premier Clark in December 2012. This is part of their conversation:
I have a detail question for you. Gordon Campbell while he was premier claimed on his conflict of interest disclosure statement a stipend from the BC Liberal Party, and you do as well. I’m wondering how much it is and what the rationale for it is?
I don’t know. Doesn’t it say in the thing?
No, I think you probably tell the Conflict of Interest Commissioner the amount, but what gets reported publicly does not have an amount.
It’s a car allowance.
Why? I’m wondering what the rationale is.
I do a lot of driving. I do a lot of driving for party events and those kinds of things.

you got that right…and a lot of people read this
more worrisome is all those that aren’t aware this even exists to read…..and they vote
That’s the scary part – the voters that aren’t aware. Betcha Chrispy gases that $50,000 car up on our dime too. Wonder how she has time to drive. Oh yes, to the airport.
Hmm? Does our well-healed premier have a Lexus parked Victoria, an Audi in her garage in Point Grey, and an Escalade on stand-by in Kelowna?
Probably. And I wouldn’t be surprised to find that we pay the leases on all three. After all, single mothers deserve all the help they can get.
You’re too kind. Some guy named Drex was more direct sometime ago, though I didn’t and still don’t see it, and I still don’t understand how she could possibly consider the remarks as complimentary.
