Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberal government doubled Medical Services Plan premiums, and now that an election is near, they are trying to trick British Columbians into forgetting their record.
If Premier Clark wanted lower taxes for ordinary people she wouldn’t have doubled the MSP, and jacked up hydro rates and ICBC premiums.
I have committed to getting rid of the MSP entirely, while the Premier is only promising to lower it a little bit next year, maybe, if she gets re-elected and decides to keep her promise.
British Columbians have made it clear that they want the MSP gone for good, not just lowered a little bit for a little while.
Premier Clark’s millionaire friends and donors will have to give up their billion-dollar tax break so that ordinary families can have life a little easier, and I’m okay with that.
The rich and big corporations have had their premier. It’s time for everyday people to have leadership that works for them.
