“BC Liberal Legacy: A Huge Debt Burden” ( aka, Christy Clark really has no clue what she is talking about)
By now most of you will have heard of the soon to be departed premiers performance on CKNW this morning.
It was stunning. If I had to name that hour I would call it ” How not to lie your way out of a paper bag.”
Regardless, in a timely bit of serendipity, our friends retired economist Erik Andersen and Dr. Sandra Hoffman have one of the most important posts up today over at The Commonsense Canadian, and I strongly feel it should be read by every British Columbian.
The debt chart above, borrowed from their post, is about as graphic as it gets of a visual on what the Liberals real debt legacy is.. and it isn’t pretty.
Here is an excerpt of their post:
It might be instructive to the citizens of BC to have a financial report card on their Provincial Government before casting their vote in the coming election.
A good starting point is the 2001 publication by Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberal Party titled “A Vision for Hope & Prosperity for the next Decade and beyond”. Ten “visions” were presented – numbers 9 and 10 are of particular interest:
9. The most open, accountable and democratic government in Canada.
10. Responsible, accountable management of your public resources and tax dollars.
Now go, read the rest, here: http://thecanadian.org/item/2045-bc-liberal-legacy-a-huge-debt-burden
And share this with everyone you know. In fact, I would suggest printing off this graphic chart on their site and share it as well, on bulletin boards, at work, with neighbours.
