Fiscal update proves conservative economic policies work but NDP put BC’s “Have” status in jeopardy

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

The BC NDP and Finance Minister Carole James gave us a preview of their first fiscal update since taking the helm of the province in July. 

They’re set to deliver their first budget on September 11th, however it’s not expected we’ll see much change in tax policy or new spending until the NDP-Green government delivers their spring budget.

Holding a minority government is quite restrictive for destroyers, and thank goodness for that.

But what was revealed in the data and numbers essentially proves right and makes the case for fiscal conservative policies when it comes to not only taxation, but spending as well.

While some may not have considered the BC Liberals a true conservative party, it’s apparent that they positioned British Columbia to have the lowest income taxes and lowest corporate taxes of any province in Canada.

Watch as I share the numbers Carole James revealed which show large increases in revenues from income taxes, corporate taxes, PST, and property transfer taxes thanks to the strong economy, and also explain why NDP policies towards resource development will jeopardize all of that.

Unfortunately, Carole James, John Horgan and the BC NDP are reminding the country of the real meaning of the letters BC - Bring Cash.

Talk about Fail, Carol is an expert at failing, except she never seems to pay the price. As Leader of the NDP she brought it from a majority Government to two seats. Sixteen years later she still has an
important job in Finance, at which she is not qualified .
In BC we are in desperate need of help, but there are no John Waynes marching in to save us.

Bring it on. The sooner we tank the sooner we can get these clowns out.
“The collapse of BC’s economy is purely speculative at this point”. so you foresee BC turfing those mofo’s in the near future do you Andrew? Otherwise BC is going down. It’s just the law of gravity with these socio-communists. They fail. It’s what they do. Destroy and then get thrown out on their chins.

I can hardly wait to hear Andrews excuses.

Andrew yeah just like we were wrong about Alberta and Ontario and the NDP destroys economies , try some history.

The collapse of BC’s economy is purely speculative at this point, but further … the Rebel’s insisting that 3/4 “haves” are on the verge of becoming “have nots” (Saskatchewan is not any better off than Alberta, but they like the government there, so they’ll pretend it’s immune). I’m curious if anybody knows how equalization actually works – it’s relative to the average so by necessity some provinces will remain “haves”.

Alberta’s so high it will stay a “have” even if it struggles for a while.
Sask, same
BC has always been pretty borderline, and its status depends entirely on whether it can pace the ROC, which is generally doing pretty well economically. Even long time laggards like Quebec and Manitoba are booming these days.
NL virtually guaranteed to return to “have not”.
If AB/SK do decline, the average will fall and ON will become a ’have" again.

Chris, I thought your White-male-privileged-capitalistic-patriarch – ‘splainin’ was hilarious…until I realized the left probably won’t see it as satire…

Otherwise, keep bangin’ away at ’em with the truth!

Hey BC, welcome to the “have not” provincial party, pals.

For a Premier to take Ontario from the “engine of the country” to the most indebted district in the west, is a clear Breach of Trust. They are at the helm and entrusted with out money and the power to write policies. they have a Duty of Care not to wreck the joint! To do so to such an egregious extent is, in my view, a Breach of that Trust.

My dad rest his sole always told me that the NDP were in power when I was young and just about destroyed the province . Good luck history repeats itself . Just look at the Trudeau liberals .
