KAMLOOPS — It was a short but energy-filled visit for Christy Clark and her election team who stopped by Peter Milobar's campaign office Friday afternoon on day four of the campaign trail.

The premier kicked off the rally with a nod to Incumbent South-Thompson MLA Todd Stone, as well Kamloops Mayor and North-Thompson Candidate Peter Milobar. 

"Make sure we get them elected and re-elected," said Clark. "That's how we're going to make sure we build a strong B.C."

With just over three weeks until the May 9th election, Clark wasted no time drilling home the Liberals platform.

"To cut your taxes by up to $900 each," said Clark. "To make sure that we create jobs in every corner of the province." 

Along with personal tax cuts, Clark spoke of the long-lasting benefits of her parties $500-million LNG Prosperity Fund.

"These are resources that once they’re gone, they're not going to be coming back. It's money that we need to put aside for our children. The NDP want to drain our kids savings account and spend that $500 million over the next two years. We need a government that’s going to look after our kids."

On a local note, Clark drove home her parties commitment to  investing in Norkam Secondary School trades and technology programs, as well expanding TRU's campus. 

"We are committed to investing in new facilities at TRU, one of Canada's great international universities," added Clark. "We are so proud or what you do here in Kamloops."

After a quick string of handshakes, hugs, and snapshots, the Liberals second stop of the campaign was officially over, - with  plenty of kilometers to go before British Columbians cast their vote.
