Premier chats with women
Christy Clark will be in Chilliwack on Thursday but if any men want to have a word with the Premier they'll be out of luck.
In fact, Chilliwack MLA John Les, candidates John Martin and Laurie Throness aren't invited either.
As for local politicians, you can bet Mayor Sharon Gaetz and Coun. Sue Attrill will get invitations but Couns. Chuck Stam, Ken Huttema, Ken Popove, Jason Lum and Stewart McLean will certainly not.
That's because Clark will be in town as part of her ongoing provincewide tour where she meets with groups of women only.
At some of the meetings-Vernon for example in December-Clark has been introduced by a local male MLA who then left the room.
Not dead yet

In a press release issued Monday, the party announced it was accepting nominations until Jan. 31 for Chilliwack-Hope and the candidate would be chosen at a Feb. 9 meeting.

There has been no sign of life from any BC Conservatives in the Chilliwack riding.
