Liberals fudge facts in recent budget
Once again, the B.C. Liberals are attempting to pull a fast one over the public.
They are foisting another fudget-budget based on selling assets when last year’s proposed sale of government land never materialized.
The Liberals are hiding from the public the massive BC Hydro debt — a whopping $4.5 billion by next year and some $59 billion over the next 30 years due to contracts signed for independent power projects that are costing us far more than double what power costs on the open market.
Their supposed “no-frills” budget still likely offers plenty of subsidy “frills” to the oil-and-gas industry.
And the budget cuts important programs, such as much-needed skills training, environmental oversight and forest inventory and planting.
Clearly, the Liberals have lost the mandate to govern.
