Shortage of "trades" and apprentices is because the millennials don't want to work at these jobs. They all want to be computer game testers.

well......since this is about the long game for less than a handful of glorious achievements - lets give the NDP 20 years and compare. its only fair - right? since the long game is key.....

In just a year and a half, we have seen:
• Nineteen new taxes and tax hikes taking more money out of your pocket, hitting small business hard, and slowing investment that creates jobs for British Columbians.
• Taxpayers put on the hook for the Trans Mountain pipeline project thanks to political interference.
• A discriminatory union benefits agreement imposed on major public projects, raising costs for taxpayers like us.

how can any right wing liberal supporter breathe the word taxes when the liberal party (in bed with the harper government) brought in the single biggest tax fiasco in BC history with the HST?

HST was a solid plan and had it worked out we would all be paying 10% now not 12%
I will agree with you it has handled poorly to the detriment of the entire province.

Paying 10% now would have been better than paying the 12% we are stuck with, thanks to you and your friends at the NDP. We'd also have a stronger economy and more employment opportunities as the HST was far superior to the regressive, tax-on-tax PST that punishes poor people and employers alike. Why does the NDP hate poor people so much?

The signs of weakness are there. Overall job growth is anemic despite the BC NDP/LEAP hiring a lot more public sector employee, both directly and indirectly. That's just one troubling signal that all is not well under the usurper illegitimate goofballs in the BC NDP.

Right now we are still mostly, in economic terms, under Liberal policies. As I said, 2019 will be the beginning of measuring the depth of BC NDP/LEAP stupidity. But then maybe the feds will save us to some extent when they trample the stupid BC NDP/LEAP and build the TMX...


Other than new teachers do you have any proof they have hired more public sector employees? We are still one of the top performing provinces in Canada. Nothing has changed or even shown a hit of a major slow down.

So in two years when nothing has happened and BC is still one of the top performing provinces in Canada will you come back and post you were wrong and nothing has happened? I thought not.

It was the people of BC who decided to get rid of the GST not the NDP. It was the Liberals that got rid of it wasn/t it? Why do the liberals hate the poor so much?
Since it was 55% of British Columbians that voted, there were a lot of Liberals voting to get rid of it as well. If the Liberals had used the money to soften the blow instead of using it to say there was a balanced budget perhaps it would still be in place.
As to you 10% vs 12% HST is on everything. So all your services would have added 10% tax to them as well.

Your user name sure is correct. The pipeline is not on hold due to political interference. It is on hold because the Conservatives did not bother to follow the law when they decided to start.
Which taxes actually hurt you? The only income tax is on high earners. Taking off the MSP saves me about $700 a year right now and that will go up again. Nice little bump. Something the Liberals said could not be done as they bumped it up year after year way past the cost of inflation

Yes, they want high paying clean inside jobs not working outside in the rain and cold and sweltering heat.

Yes but you have to remember that without those " outside in the rain and cold and sweltering heat" jobs the other jobs would not have heated, air conditioned, electrically lighted, plumbed buildings to work in. No roads to drive on or ride their bikes on. Or do you suggest we bring back slavery?
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

The left wingers were so ticked off when the right wing abolished slavery.

I can see where the die hard lefties yearn to go back to the days when they could whip their "boy" to do their chores for them. The inherent laziness of the left is no secret.
Hi, I'm Justin Trudeau, and I'm riding a bus.
Why? It's not because my $2,000,000 vintage 1960 Mercedes 300SL is in the shop.
It's because it's election time and I need you to believe that I'm just like you and that I actually care.

Nothing to do with anything. What a crock.

My post was that people would prefer to train for a good well paying inside reliable job rather than a mediocre paying season job. Thats all.
Where you got slavery from is beyond me.
