BC Liberals Release Election Platform
Prince George, B.C. – Job creation, tax cuts for the middle class and spending restraint – those are the three main tenets of the B.C. Liberals election platform.
Premier Christy Clark released her party’s plan in Vancouver this morning.
With $150 million in new spending commitments, she said the platform is in direct contrast to the billions in spending promises the NDP and BC Green parties are proposing.
“British Columbians work hard to get ahead, and we have a responsibility to make sure they keep more of their paycheques so they can build the lives they want and take care of the people they want.”
The Premier also reminded reporters B.C. “is number one” in Canada in job creation and with their promised 50 per cent reduction in MSP premiums – are focused on “cutting taxes for individuals.”
She also renewed her pledge to get Site C built to help promote “thousands of jobs” while “guaranteeing a 100-year supply of clean, affordable, reliable power.”
Though there was little mention of LNG, Clark noted she’s helping position B.C. “as a global leader in technology and innovation” by committing to more graduates in tech-related disciplines.
More details of the platform will be released in the weeks ahead.
