Our NDP and Trump have a lot in common.


OT - you are confused. It was the BC Liberals who ensured they scurried around to ensure the pockets of their elite million and billionaire buddies and DONORS continued to get their pockets lined by the same gullible and stupid BC Liberal supporters.
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

No, but they've been in power before


The BC Liberals had never been in power before their last horrendous reign of terror, and they will likely never be in power again........at least not under that name. The BC Conservative Party is also without a leader, so we can expect whoever wins the prize at the BC Liberal leadership convention to emerge victorious under the banner of the BC Conservatives.

^^ Now that the definition of delusional has been aptly demonstrated for us ............... [icon_lol2.gif]

"Horrendous Reign of Terror"........... yeah that's the 90's NDP described spot on.

usually a "reign of terror" in most peoples' mind doesn't coincide with having one of the lowest unemployment and highest growth periods in Canada. A lot of people describe the NDP period in the 1990's as a reign of terror, because those bumbling bozos destroyed a lot of the economy, hired thousands of needless employees, did a disgusting backroom deal with the BCTF that is still costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and in general were just terrible, which is why they were punted 77-2. The Liberals didn't experience this kind of punting, wonder why that is. They actually had more seats and more votes than the NDP do-dos in the last election. So after all of that, the only reason I could see calling the BC Liberals 16 years a "reign of terror" would be purely for partisan reasons, and to mislead. And that is truly awful.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

I repeat, the only seismic shift you're going to see is a shift from a corporate-run government to a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.

Yes, this is good news from the association whose purpose is to bolster credit unions.

I'll be watching the various business sections for their careful analysis of this opinion piece, and for their own assessments of BC's fiscal health and outlook.

I expect with the upcoming budget already following the lines laid out by the previous government, we have some breathing room. Perhaps by the second sitting, James and Weaver will have made some headway with Horgan and his unruly pack. And there's hope the BCUC will work for the benefit of all British Columbians. Where there's life, there's hope.

"The upcoming budget already following the lines laid out by the previous government....." There's no way any government would 'follow' a fake budget. The NDP is about to prove that, DESPITE the BC Liberal budget, they will somehow be able to show British Columbians that all is not lost; that there's a way out of the quagmire in which the previous government left us.

Link? LOL. Just kidding. I know, I know. You don't "do" links. So I'll just have to take your statement the same way I've taken all your statements.
