Read this stunning piece from Gabriel Yiu in the Georgia Straight, exploding the myth of BC Liberal economic superiority. Learn how the Campbell/Clark government has secretly hidden over $100 Billion in long-term liabilities for the people of BC.
“The biggest deficits in BC’s history were recorded during the decade of the Liberals’ governance. On the debt front, the Liberals’ record is very scary. In 2011, the
traditional debt on the books is $53.4 billion—that is, an increase of
$19.6 billion in the years after they formed government. It’s 42 percent
higher than the NDP government’s debt increase in the 1990s. Nevertheless, behind the image of adroit fiscal management, the
Liberals have another ledger that they’re unwilling to account for. The
debt load in this ledger is a staggering $80.2 billion!” (Sept 25, 2011)
