This would be one of the only reasons I would consider voting for Horgan. Once again with the nonsensical term "subsidies" - totally dishonest and disingenuous. These people that wrote this gibberish should be ashamed of themselves.

The short answer is; Every. Single. One. Nothing new. It's been like that for decades.

Take a look at your municipal bylaws and I'm sure you'll find other examples. It's not so much the gov't as the gov't lawyers and I'm serious you'd be hard pressed to find a single piece of legislation; act, regulation or bylaw that doesn't have indemnity language in it. Bill 19 was a housekeeping exercise that consolidated all the emergency measures taken by the gov't to support public health during the initial corona-virus outbreak.

There's all sorts of good reasons not to vote NDP, Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, Eco-socialist or Green. But this isn't one of them.

Looking at the situation in BC, opposition imo hasn’t been vocal enough during last year+. It’s not looking good for a replacement of current government of BC.

Hopefully voters feel differently.

I have to agree. The trend in Canada of late has been to get angry enough to vote someone out and nobody is making a strong enough case to turf the NDP.

I can’t see them taking the Penticton riding, it would be my hopes that the Liberals can mount an opposition strong enough to keep them in check to some degree.

Fair comment. Now we can agree or disagree. If you disagree a lot maybe you don't go there again, but I find it fun that he made his statement. Maybe people won't like how, but he has the right and the venue and apparently that's his feelings.

Not really. This is a pretty silly thing to say actually.

100% with your last sentence Larry.

As far as right and left go, there is a lot of territory between the two extremes and I would not call the BC Libs far right, just as I would not classify the BC NDP as far left. That being said, I do not favor a government that support bigger government and unions the way NDP seem to. Unions equal waste in my opinion.
