Well… it’s a lie. Plain and simple.
I can’t see how somebody can look at the record surplus under the NDP, and then the BC Liberals come along, and there’s a two record deficits in a row (holy shit! borrowing money to give it away!), and still maintain that the Liberals are good for the economy.
The only reason we don’t have a deficit now is because BC received money from the federal government for being a “have-not” province. How embarassing is that? BC’s so poor now that Ontario and Alberta have to send us money.
Thanks Bill Belsey. Only a clown could look at the worse financial management in BC history and call it a success.
