British Columbians are just eight days away from going to the polls. I caught up with Jordan Bateman of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation for an analysis of the three parties, their platforms, their promises and the implications for BC taxpayers.
Watch as we discuss why the current governing BC Liberals are the only party showing fiscal prudence and restraint.
Bateman also explains how the taxes in the NDP and Green Party platform will badly hurt our pocket books.
We also discuss the biggest issue this election - housing prices with Bateman reminding voters that the provincial government's effect here is limited. It’s municipal governments causing most of the problems with red tape, levies and fee's on new homes.
Finally we end with an announcement from Bateman that he's leaving the CTF and joining the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of BC. We wish him luck and look forward to hearing from him in this new role.
