B.C. Premier Christy Clark returned to work from her extended Christmas vacation this week.

The public and media won't get to see her until a press conference on Wednesday morning, but she did make time to reach out to Justin ('Drex') Wilcomes — the shock-jock who was fired for asking her what it was like to be a MILF during a live on-air interview last month.

Earlier this week, Drex tweeted this:

Drex's MILF question and Clark's surprising response caused a public uproar. Instead of dismissing the question, Clark actually answered it.

"You know, I take that as a compliment … you know, it’s one of those things," Clark said.

"Better a MILF than a cougar."

Drex was unceremoniously fired by the radio station last week and subsequently sent Clark an apology.

According to the Globe and Mail, Clark's communications director confirmed that the premier did call Drex.

"She not only wished him professional luck, but thanked him for an apologetic e-mail. Ben Chin said that Mr. Wilcomes apologized to the Premier for the question, and for putting her in an awkward position."

Wilcomes has landed on his feet — as they say. He is now working for Vancouver's 99.3 The Fox.
