Glen Clark

Glen Clark (born 1957) succeeded Michael Harcourt in 1996 to become leader of British Columbia's NDP and BC's 31st Premier. Clark was first elected to the B.C. legislature in 1986.

Mr Clark left office under allegations that he had accepted favours (free renovations worth $10,000) from Dimitrios Pilarinos in return for approving a casino application. He was acquitted of all charges in August 2002 with the judge ruling that "there is nothing in his conduct that crosses the line from an act of folly to behaviour calling for criminal sanctions". Glen Clark was succeeded as Premier of B.C. by Deputy Premier Dan Miller.
