Racism is not a problem. If you think racism is a problem, you are out of touch with the real world. I never see racism. I do see weak justice systems, foolish spending and dumb policies that only tax society and produce no results. Want more affordable housing, create massive jobs and build industry to produce construction products extremely efficiently. THe government is not about solving problems. Its about control and manipulation.

We are doomed, recent study shows more than 50% of BC votes not for the party they want or approve of, but the party they want to block. Listed on Castanet today.
That s where we are now. How absolute pathetic that this is all we are left with when making our decision today of governments of choice. How pathetic all the parties have become and even more so the individuals within. :cuss:

Interesting that the race has apparently tightened with a 20-point lead now a 10-point lead. If the latest poll is to be believed. I still expect the NDP to win their majority but it may be that people are listening to Horgan and not buying his explanation for why he called an unnecessary election during a pandemic.

1998 is the last time the NDP won a provincial election and in that election they did not win the popular vote. That's why we have to be careful at looking at even a 10-point and concluding beyond all doubt that the resulting seat distribution will correspond. Again, I do think the NDP will get their majority but it might not be as big as Horgan was expecting. We'll see . . .

Is that down to a 10 point lead over the Liberals Urbane? I wonder how many NDP votes might go toward the Green Party.

Thanks. It is going to be interesting. Too bad we might have to wait two weeks to find out the results

I had look at it and there's plenty of feel-good terminology, but, and I may have missed it, how do they plan on paying for these billions of annual expenditures?

That is what potential Green voters should be asking.

You've touched on the main item that the Greens have in common with the NDP.

Both are excellent at spending other peoples' money, and both also think voters pockets are endlessly overflowing with cash, allowing for them to pick said pockets at will.

What neither has figured out yet, is what happens once you've spent everyone elses' money?

Given that they don't have to attend remedial arithmetic classes with Horgan and James, they likely have a plan.

As far as a tax review goes, You and I are the only taxpayers. If you raise corporate taxes, they have to raise the price of their goods and services, and guess what ? That increase is paid by you and me, no-one else. The consumer pays all the taxes. There is no free lunch.

I find it hard to believe that anybody can think that raising any tax will not affect what they pay for goods and services.

I did not say that, you need help with your comprehension. Corporations must raise prices whenever they lose their profit margin, otherwise they go broke. NOT rocket science.
