Aftershocks continued Monday off the B.C. Coast following Saturday's 7.7 magnitude earthquake. It came as people along the BC's coast were settling down somewhat after Saturday night's massive earthquake on Haida Gwaii. The 7.7 magnitude quake spawned several tsunami warnings and evacuations before the all-clear was given.

Prince George Mounties say one person was killed and at least two more were injured just before 10 o'clock Sunday night. They say two vehicles collided about 18 kilometres south of Prince George on highway 97. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Premier Christy Clark is insisting she is ready to take on the Opposition New Democrats in the next provincial election. The B.C.

Clark says she's eager to compare her plans for the province with those of Opposition Leader Adrian Dix, who she accuses of hiding his party's intentions.
