Glen Clark

Former British Columbia provincial politician (1986-1999), leader of B.C.'s socialist New Democratic Party and provincial premier (1996-1999), former union organizer

[When I entered politics] I had a much stronger faith that government could be used to solve problems than I have now. ... [The New Democratic Party] We have become the new conservatives. We're the defenders of the status quo. We don't want to change health care or education or government - we support it. So ironically, innovation, change, new ideas seem the preserve of the right wing.

Aug. 4, 2001 - quoted in "Clark sees new light in neon sign business", published in the National Post
