[Premier Christy] Clark told a Vancouver Island economic summit her government’s highly touted September 2011 jobs plan — with its focus on increased trade with China and Asia and promoting liquefied natural gas exports, new mines and exploring innovations in technology and agri-foods — was working.
Vancouver Sun, April 15, 2013:
There was Premier Christy Clark Monday, dedicating herself to the goal of a “debt-free British Columbia,” and telling reporters that debt reduction has always been “a central value for me.”
As a central part of her campaign, Christy Clark promised more jobs and a debt-free province. What she’s giving us instead is a province drowning in debt with a declining portion of gainfully employed residents. In fact, according to the most recent Statistics Canada report, there are fewer job-holders in British Columbia than May 2014, or May 2013, or May 2012 or even May 2008.
