Provincial Budget to Be Delivered Today
Prince George, B.C.- It is budget day for B.C. and it is anticipated the Provincial Government will ‘stay the course’.
All indications are there will be little change to the spending plan which was outlined last year in a three year spending plan.
Minister of Finance Mike de Jong carried on the tradition of a Finance Minister showing off shoes yesterday, but instead of buying a new pair, had a comfortable “balanced’ pair re-soled.
While the budget details remain confidential until de Jong rises in the Legislature, hints are there will be a slight increase in spending in health care, and increased fees and premiums.
