BC election: Key developments from Day 28

09 May, 2017, 07:26 | Author: Garry Little

NDP Leader John Horgan waves after addressing supporters during a campaign stop in Surrey, B.C., on Monday May 8, 2017. The Liberals ran with the interaction, painting Horgan as an angry man who doesn't have the temperament to govern. Indeed, I have a well-developed dislike of the misnamed BC "Liberals" and the damage they have done to this province. "That's the message we want people to hear".

In the afternoon, Weaver is scheduled to campaign in other Victoria-area ridings, such as Swan Lake and Beacon Hill, and will remain in the provincial capital for the Greens' election party.

"Forestry is huge in British Columbia and we said right from the beginning we will use every tool at our disposal to get a softwood agreement and protect B.C.jobs", Mayencourt said.

British Columbia led Canada's other provinces in economic growth in 2015 and is forecast to have repeated this in 2016 while also producing five consecutive balanced budgets. Horgan is looking to the Lower Mainland to pick up the additional nine seats his party needs to form a majority government.

Politically fundraising laws, the cost of housing and a trade spat with the United States over softwood lumber have been central themes of the 28-day campaign.

Liberal strategist Lorne Mayencourt credited the party leader's response to Donald Trump's softwood tariff - a proposed ban on USA coal imports that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised to consider - for her increased popularity. "I'm just working hard to make sure British Columbian's know what I stand for, what I believe in and the choice, the really, really stark choice in this election".

GOP-led panel OKs bill to overhaul Dodd-Frank
President Donald Trump has denounced Dodd-Frank and promised that his administration would "do a big number" on it. Relief for smaller banks and credit unions is one of the few areas of bipartisan agreement on the committee.

Doc Currie held a homemade protest sign as he followed Clark, yelling that she was the worst premier the province has ever had.

"That's the way B.C.is; that's the way B.C. always will be".

- Horgan said everywhere he's been during the election campaign, people have been telling him they can't wait to have a government that works for them.

Clark campaigned from dusk to dawn, starting Monday in Richmond, then flying to Sidney and Courtenay (where the Liberals hope to retain one of their two Island seats), and finishing the marathon in Hope and Abbotsford.

"We can't afford four more years of Clark", Horgan told supporters.
