The BC NDP have been contesting elections since 1961. Their record in 15 general elections is three wins, 11 losses and whatever we can call what happened this year: They didn’t win the most seats or votes but, thanks to the Green Party, they’re now the government for the fourth time.
The NDP have never fared well in government, and that’s because those who inevitably end up in government are usually inept, lack real world private sector experience, and are complete ideological partisans.
That means they never look out for the people who put them in power, but rather, look after their friends who share their ideological partisanship.
Today I’ll acquaint you with two key members of John Horgan’s NDP cabinet, Attorney General David Eby and Finance Minister Carole James.
During the election, I brought you the exclusive story of David Eby’s flirtation with one of the most radical environmental groups the world has ever seen.
Watch as I show you how familiar David Eby will be with the tactics of protesters because he himself learned all about them at an Earth First conference in Europe.
I'll also show you why the police in BC must be very concerned with Eby as AG since he has a history of condemning the police, even writing a book on how to sue cops in small claims court.
Our new finance minister is a familiar face, two time loser as NDP leader Carole James.
James has precisely zero private sector experience, has no past running a company or a small business, and now she’s in charge of running a multi-billion dollar finance ministry.
Referring to the BC Liberals’ recent elimination of the top tax bracket for high income earners, she also told Vaughn Palmer of the Vancouver Sun that, “It would surprise no one that we’re going to take a look at taking that tax break back.”
Just what a precarious minority government needs to help ensure continued economic confidence in BC— a Finance Minister who isn't entirely clear on their own policies or how to pay for them.
