10. The Worst Private Sector Job Performance in Canada: BC deserves better than the BC Liberals’ failed jobs plan, which has bled BC of 45,600 private sector jobs. The NDP plan invests in skills training to grow the economy and create jobs, and takes concrete steps to support LNG, mining, high-tech, forestry, film, agriculture and small business.
9. Wasting Your Money on Partisan TV Ads: BC deserves better than BC Liberals spending $17 million of your money on partisan advertising. The NDP will end partisan advertising.
8. Misled you on their Deficits: BC deserves better than BC Liberals misleading us about government spending when they ran five straight deficits, including an $800-million deficit this year. The NDP’s fully-costed platform says what we will do and how we will pay for it.
7. Misled you on their Debt: BC deserves better than BC Liberals misleading us about debt when Christy Clark is raising the debt faster than any premier in BC’s history. The NDP’s fully-costed platform says what we will do and how we will pay for it.
6. The BC Rail Scandal: BC deserves better than BC Liberals giving $6 million of your money to convicted Liberal insiders. The NDP will hold a public inquiry into the BC Rail Scandal.
5. The “Quick Wins” Scandal: BC deserves better than BC Liberals working on government time and the taxpayers’ dime on BC Liberal party election work. The NDP will put the public interest first.
4. The BC Liberals Won’t Tell You Where They Stand on Ferry Fares: BC deserves better than BC Liberals who won’t tell you where they stand on ferry fares. The NDP will keep current ferry fares in place through March 31, 2015.
3. They Have No Plan for Health Care, Education and Children: BC deserves better than BC Liberals who have no plan for health care, education, seniors and children. The BC NDP plan will expand seniors health care and mental health, improve classroom learning, expand child care and make it more affordable, and reduce child poverty.
2. They Will Put Our Coast at Risk with Increased Tanker Traffic: BC deserves better than BC Liberals who hand over decision-making about pipelines to Ottawa and who will sell our coast for the right price. The BC NDP will take back control of pipeline decisions and protect our coasts from potentially catastrophic oil spills.
1. The HST Broke Your Trust: In the last election, the BC Liberals promised – in writing – they would not bring in the HST. Weeks after the election, they broke that promise and they broke your trust. That’s a record that doesn’t deserve to be rewarded.
On May 14, choose change, not more of the same. Vote NDP.
