Did you live in, or know someone who lived in BC during the 1990’s? British Columbians suffered a decade of darkness after the BC NDP came to power in 1991.
But that was over 25 years ago now so watch as I take us on a brief trip down memory lane.
In addition to having two NDP leaders resign in disgrace and scandal within an eight year period, their economic record was also terrible when in typical NDP fashion, corporate taxes rose far too high and income taxes continued to rise further burdening our economy.
By the time the NDP were removed from power, the BC Liberals gave every single British Columbian a 25% tax cut and cut the corporate tax to 10%.
It's been 16 years since we exorcised the NDP from power and only now are we recovering.
