Mayor of Burnaby Derek Corrigan said Christy Clark is “the weakest” of premiers in Canada.

Corrigan said the City is embarrassed and disappointed by the Province’s announcement to approve the pipeline yesterday, citing environmental concerns.

“Christy Clark has been out-gunned, out-muscled and out-thought by Rachel Notley and British Columbia will pay a heavy price,” he said in a statement released by the Mayor’s Office this morning. “Luckily, we have a provincial election coming up in May, so the people of B.C. can be heard.”
