No political interference in brother’s wind farm proposal, says Premier’s Office

Premier Christy Clark’s office is denying there was any political interference in a local band election in Haida Gwaii.

That’s in response to a Globe and Mail report that a candidate alleges the Premier’s visit to the community November 26th influenced the election, which was won by his rival who supports a $10-million dollar wind farm proposal involving her brother.

Spokesperson Ben Chin says the province has been discussing expanding the local school in Old Massett for more than a year, and that Premier Christy Clark was not aware of any wind farm proposal tied to her brother Bruce Clark.

Losing candidate Kimball Davidson told The Globe and Mail the Premier’s recent visit announcing a grant for a feasibility study into expanding the elementary school boosted the campaign of Chief Ken Rea, who was narrowly re-elected on Monday.

Chin has told CKNW the province is committed to working with the federal government and Old Massett, despite Davidson’s remarks the school is on reserve land and is therefore the feds’ responsibility.

Davidson tells the Globe in the last decade the federal government has done two similar feasibility studies.
