Christy Clark's trip to Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference got off to a bit of a bumpy start.

The B.C. Premier tweeted yesterday morning that the de-icing machine took a bite out of her plane just before takeoff.

Her press secretary Sam Oliphant says she was re-routed and was set to land in Paris shortly after she was originally expected to arrive.

Clark has vowed to promote B.C. as an environmental leader at the global summit, where she'll join other premiers and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
