As education minister Christy Clark supported Catholic schools

Christy Clark will be B.C.'s next premier, and those who wonder where she stands on issues of particular importance to Catholics might find this story from The B.C. Catholic archives of interest.

As B.C. Education Minister, Clark made history in 2003 when she attended the 25th Annual Catholic Educators’ Conference organized by the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese.
Clark was the first education minister to visit the conference since its inception in 1978, the year after independent schools first received funding from the provincial government.

At the event she recognized the quality of Catholic schools and pledged her support of independent schools.
