Bateman: BC Liberal fiscal plan "head and shoulders above the rest"

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

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.

Unbelievable, the polls are so close. It proves that any Party can promise free-bees that the Province cannot afford and get elected. That was Obama’s strategy for two elections. I have to say that voters in BC are just as Stupid as any where else in Canada.

Unfortunately, there are too many working stiffs who are busy with work and family and do not have time to look at the reality of voting NDP.
Yes, Clark leaves a lot to be desired, and if there was a real conservative option available in my riding, that’s who I’d vote for (because in my riding the NDP got less than 20% last election, no chance of it coming up the middle like happened in Alberta).
If you’re in a riding where the NDP got less than say 25% last election, go ahead and vote for something other than Liberal since they’re almost guaranteed to win anyways.
The BCCons need to get their act together to present themselves as credible before they have a chance to win seats.
If you’re in a riding that is solid NDP (50+% last election), feel free to also vote for something other than Liberal.
It’s about voting for the lesser of two evils, however, these two parties are miles apart on the level-of-evil scale.
If you’re in a swingable riding, hold your nose and vote for Clark’s Liberals.
