B.C. economy must brace for a seismic shift from NDP

Do I need to link to the 170+ posts where the word corruption is used and discuss how many instances are incorrect?

Fine... How exactly is the rbc corrupt? What actions? What dates?

I suppose that TD, CIBC, Scotiabank, and BMO latest forecasts that call for a significant decline in BC's GDP growth rate next year are all not be considered either.

Oh, well, I guess Johnny Horgan will waive Dumbledor's wand and it will all be good....

I've made a note of the range of forecasts. We will know good Johnny is with his wand in about a year....

The good news is that none them are forecasting an increase in the unemployment rate in BC. That's of more concern to me than real GDP numbers anyway. If folks don't lose their jobs, no harm done. If folks start losing their jobs, then we know Johnny has hold of the wrong end of the wand.

The financial institution says the B.C. economy has "fired on nearly all cylinders" this year, with growth for 2017 forecast at 3.5 per cent.

Deputy chief economist Bryan Yu says robust consumer demand is fuelling the growth thanks to surging employment, strong exports and government support.
Today's budget reinstated $$ for credit unions, "permanently".
The provincial preferential income tax treatment for credit unions was restored on Jan 1, 2017. This means there will be $15 million a year to credit unions to reinvest in communities.

I would really like to hear mj's answer to this( I need a good laugh today ) but I really doubt we will hear any response to it cause she knows it's BS.

That's funny. Rather listen to one rinky dink NDP supporting credit union on economic matters than the banks that really know. [icon_lol2.gif]

"CORRUPTION" is the battle cry of the inarticulate uninformed.

With no specifics it means nothing other than insight into the mind of those who scream it out .

It will just transfer the current non taxpaying employee's of the pot trade onto welfare. No new jobs created......probably even less with the efficiency of a regulated industry.
