B.C. Premier Christy Clark speaks at the B.C. Liberals annual leaders'’dinner at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Mon. April 8, 2013.


British Columbia's Premier took some swipes at NDP leader Adrian Dix as she accepted her party's nomination in her Vancouver riding.

Christy Clark took Mr. Dix to task while addressing those gathered at her Vancouver-Point Grey riding office Saturday afternoon.

She repeatedly called on Mr. Dix to make his party's vision for the province known.

Ms. Clark says she wants a one-on-one debate with Mr. Dix but so far he's refused her challenge.

Mr. Dix says he won't agree to a debate until all four party leaders in the race are allowed to participate.

He says it would be unfair to leadership contenders from the Green Party and BC Conservatives.

Voters will go to the polls in just over a month.
