I am tired of hearing about people dying every single day from overdoses while we still don't have a solid long term plan-a year after declaring a state of emergency. I'm tired of watching friends and family struggle more and more every year while costs of living skyrocket and wages remain stagnate. I am tired of fundraising endlessly to cover basic supplies at my sons school and watching other schools go without because they cant fundraise enough.

"I'll watch you for a while. I know you like that." I recoiled slightly as those words were spoken, as I imagine many women did. I wasn't the one being patronized, but I still felt it. Women everywhere have at one point or another endured condescending, dismissive, creepy remarks designed to "put us in our place."

Projecting Economic Competence Never Was B.C. NDP's Strong Suit

In election after election, the B.C. NDP either get their projections wrong - or they abandon their economic promises, mid-writ. Either way, it does not engender confidence. Tommy Douglas, among others, would not be impressed. Even a New Democrat, he believed, needs to able to say how he or she will pay the bills.

B.C. Liberals' Costs Deserve Same Scrutiny Afforded NDP

Why are we not questioning the cost (both financially and socially) of our current Liberal government's policies? The cost aspect of a promise or platform is a justified question, but only if you hold every party to the same scrutiny.

B.C. Liberals' Election Ads Don't Represent Province's True Reality

Well we are a month away from the provincial election here in B.C. which is hard to miss considering the non stop Liberal ads running every day all day on the radio, TV and social media. I don't know about you but I am pretty sick of listening to how great the Liberals are and how B.C. is #1 in everything.

With so many issues commanding headlines at the start of the provincial election campaign, it is easy to understand how caring for frail and elderly citizens can drop off the public's radar. For many British Columbians, however, there can be no more important issue than the availability of care for their elderly loved one.

We have the opportunity to elect a new government led by politicians who spend more than 36 days a year in the Legislature. Politicians who behave like public servants, not sycophants for foreign corporations.We have the opportunity to have a government that puts people before profiteering, a government that enacts a Poverty Reduction Plan like all other provinces have done.

Don't Take Any Civics Lesson From The BC NDP

Warren Kinsella | Posted 03.10.2017 | Canada British Columbia
Warren Kinsella

Are the BC NDP full of crap? Yeah, sort of, they are. They've gone bananas about the fact that Elections BC is asking the governing party about fundraising stuff. What they're not telling anyone is that they're being asked, too. And John Horgan's crew aren't enthusiastic about anyone probing BC NDP fundraising practices. There's a history, you see.

Nothing Heroic About $25M 'Funding Increase' For Public Schools

Sarah Miller | Posted 06.03.2016 | Canada British Columbia
Sarah Miller

The B.C. Liberals have been cutting funding and supports for public schools. This year alone the government asked school board to find $25 million in "administrative cuts," last year it was $29 million. So this one-time funding announcement is not what I consider to be an addition to funding, but rather a reduction in this year's cuts.
