NDP tries to 'one-up' Greens on environmental policy

NDP tries to 'one-up' Greens on environmental policy

Christy Clark is the MLA for Kelowna West, but she won't be in the riding on election night, May 9.

RICHMOND-A new CBC tracker poll says Richmond Queenborough NDP candidate Amandeep Singh Chandi has an edge to win the seat over broadcaster-turned Christy Clark LNG pitchman Jas Johal, who's running for the BC Liberals.

"In a desperate attempt to cling to power, Christy Clark is attacking the United Steelworkers".

Clark says the province is in perilous times and that what people care most about are jobs, which she says the Liberals are best able to provide. She's signed backroom deals to allow companies to utilize temporary foreign workers instead of British Columbians in our resource industries.

"I decided on the spur of the moment to go up and talk to her", Higgins told me.

It was a campaign-trail encounter that lasted all of seven seconds, but it blew-up into a social-media firestorm that backfired on Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals.

"I don't think that the foreign buyers tax has had the impact the Liberals wanted it to have because it's so easy to get around". She then walked away. MacLeod drew on the B.C. governments own documents and found a two-income family making $60,000 a year pays about $2,400 more per year in taxes than they would in Alberta and about $1,200 more than they would in Saskatchewan.

But during her closing remarks during Wednesday's debate Clark again went for the line that her government is taking on the provincial debt and eliminating it.

Trade War with Canada? Not So Fast

Bruins will bring back Bruce Cassidy as coach
Bruce Cassidy has been named the 28th head coach of the Boston Bruins, General Manager Don Sweeney announced Thursday. He spent parts of two seasons as the Washington Capitals' head coach, leading them to the playoffs in 2002-03.

But she is voting NDP this time, and the Liberals pointed to a Facebook photo of her with Sunshine Coast NDP candidate Nicholas Simons. "Perfect. That's her right", Clark said.

Ms. Higgins said she has separated the issue from herself, and considers it more about the bigger picture of politics in B.C.

O'Neil: "You have to actually sign that".

But the Liberals fought back, unleashing a conspiracy theory that the whole thing was cooked up by the NDP.

Horgan said the NDP has a $10 billion capital plan to invest in the services people count on, including the construction of the long-anticipated new hospital in the Valley, and create 96,000 jobs. She was also stunned by Clark's version of their exchange.

"He said, 'Auntie Linda, you're trending on Twitter!' I said, 'What are you talking about?' I couldn't believe it". It was all on tape.

"I really like that, because if I get an injury, I want to know that I can be treated well and that my injuries get cured", said the Grade 5 student.
