Embattled B.C. premier resigns

The premier and his government had been dogged by continued anger over his decision to introduce the HST shortly after winning re-election in 2009. In fact, anger at Campbell was expressed even in the Commons on Wednesday, with Vancouver East NDP MP Libby Davies rubbing the HST in the premier's face. "This is one of those core fundamental issues about voter trust and democracy, and it's hitting the people of B.C. very hard, and that's why Gordon Campbell's paying a price, and it's why the Conservatives will pay a price, too," she said.
