And yet he's going to win a giant majority, and the brainless idiots running BC right now are going to hand it to him on a silver platter. If anyone needs a glaring example of why you DON'T vote NDP, it's the gang of dufuses we have here in BC currently running our "government".

Fine. Then they're not allowed to vacation here. Or use our ports. Buncha crybabies.

So you're saying we should be forcing poor people to pay $3/litre for gas, and then have them lose their hospitality industry jobs by destroying tourism, too. I just don't understand why the left hates poor people so much.

The "left" doesn't hate poor people and are stats available to show that the Albertans support the tourism industry so much that the industry would collapse if JLives idea ever came true? LOL. It's just that GF, an idea. It's not like the constitution is going to be broken or Albertans on BC's coast are going to be rounded up and moved out of hotels and restaurants. Geezz. Did you have a :bethecoffee: coffee yet? :D

The left is so out of touch with the economic drivers in this province. They should really pay some sort of penalty (in addition to the regular ridicule) for their incompetence.


Tourism dollars: Alberta is a billion-dollar player in B.C.’s tourism sector as the province’s second-largest market for visitors after British Columbians themselves, as tracked by Destination B.C. Between Kootenay mountain ski trips and Okanagan lake vacations, Albertans took 2.9 million overnight trips to B.C., accounting for 14 per cent of B.C.’s overall overnight visitation in 2017, and spent $1.4 billion on hotels, restaurants and attractions. Alberta visitors mostly drive — 70 per cent of trips are by car or truck — and their average travel group is 3.1 people, who spend about five nights in the province and spend $479 per person. Just over one-third of their trips were to the Kootenays, 27 per cent visited the Thompson-Okanagan region, and 21 per cent of trips were to Vancouver and the Coast Mountains.

Alberta accounted for $21.4 billion in imports and exports through the Port of Vancouver in 2016, which delivered considerable benefits for both provinces. Alberta’s 2016 exports to China, Japan and the rest of Asia totalled $5.7 billion alone, the Business Council of B.C. reported last summer. Alberta, like B.C., is a major exporter, but as a landlocked province, relies on transportation links across the province to ports in Vancouver and Prince Rupert to get its grains, manufactured food and chemical products out to the world. That activity supports thousands of jobs across the transportation chain, from railway employees to truck drivers, warehouse workers, and longshoremen at port terminals. In a 2016 economic impact report, the Port of Vancouver estimated that handling all maritime cargo created 36,000 jobs and $2.4 billion in wages within Metro Vancouver that paid an average of $68,000 a year, higher than the national average.

B.C. sold Alberta some $3.3 billion worth of natural gas in 2014, the latest trade figures available. B.C. Stats data for the same year report shipments of natural gas to Alberta at 23.6 billion cubic metres, a little more than half of the province’s production.

B.C. sold $8.1 billion worth of material goods in 2014, more than twice what it traded with Ontario, its second-biggest inter-provincial trading partner, according to Statistics Canada data.

In 2014, B.C. sold $9.5 billion worth of services to Alberta, which again dwarfed its trade with China (Ontario was the next closest at $8.3 billion in 2014). And between 2009 and 2014, the value of services traded between the two provinces increased by 49 per cent.
