Less than a week before British Columbians decide on our next government. Today, rather than talk about shady NDP candidates and their activist pasts, I want to get down to brass tacks on the economy.
Watch as I show you what a new BMO report has to say on the current state of BC's economy which currently leads Canada in GDP growth, and has been doing so for the past three years.
Then I'll show you what life might be like under a Premier Horgan BC NDP government.
The Business Council of BC suggests we could see a 55% marginal income tax rate, and yesterday John Horgan told the Vancouver Sun that while he won’t raise taxes on the middle class, he defines the middle class as those making around $60-70k per year.
When it comes to taxes, the BC NDP's record in power is dreadful. At one time, they instituted an extremely punitive corporate capital tax and former Premier Glen Clark once tabled a home equity tax when he was Finance Minister.
That, is down right crazy but so are NDP policies.
Let's not make a big orange mistake next week, BC.
