B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell is stepping down and has asked his party to hold a leadership convention.

 

The premier's leadership of the B.C. Liberal Party had been under attack since his introduction of the HST and there were rumours he had lost the support of a significant portion of his cabinet in recent weeks.

Campbell made the announcement during a surprise news conference on Wednesday morning in Vancouver, accompanied by his wife and children.

The news comes amid reports that several Liberal MLAs were planning on calling for Campbell to step down at an upcoming caucus meeting.

Its not like he had any choice - he's consistantly managed to fuck over the middle/working class in this province, OH, and then he was re-elected less than a year ago (while promising not to pass the HST) - got elected, and look! HST!.
