The battle for Burnaby North: BC Election

- Liberal Leader Christy Clark campaigned at a biotech company in Vancouver, telling her audience the biggest threat facing the province is U.S. President Donald Trump's anti-trade rhetoric.

Over the weekend Clark's brush with a woman in a North Vancouver grocery store created a public relations problem for the BC Liberals. With the last "shake-down" deal already expired due to inaction on the USA side, it was the first topic Clark brought up with newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"I've been involved at the very highest levels internationally of climate policy for my entire career", Weaver said.

The NDP has been runner-up in 15 of the last 18 B.C. elections, losing to either the Social Credit Party or B.C. Liberals, who have won the last four provincial elections.

Clark adds that the B.C. Liberal government would continue to look at tax competitiveness, but no matter what business groups suggest she would not bring in an HST.

The radio debate might be remembered for a moment when Horgan asked Clark not to touch him after she put her hand on his arm and told him to calm down.

The stones "showed signs of impact", Smithsonian Magazine said, and the bones were found piled up right around these stones. In experiments, they used that method to break elephant bones and produced identical fracture patterns.


The bad news is that her party appears to be trailing the B.C. New Democrats by eight per cent, according to a Forum Research survey of 1,067 voters obtained by Metro, and she remains disliked by almost two-in-three British Columbians. It's not just housing, it's a whole host of things.

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.

"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. I don't think ideology matters that much", he said.

"No one knew I was going to speak to Christy Clark". The NDP consistently lost it to the Liberals three times since then, but each time by under 1,000 votes. "Every day people are paying more and getting less".

Economist Jock Finlayson co-wrote the analysis and admits it's speculative, as the NDP has not specified plans for such an increase in its platform, however he says the logic plays out. Like I said, it's not about me. She's signed backroom deals to allow companies to utilize temporary foreign workers instead of British Columbians in our resource industries. "I didn't say anything remotely like that. So if people are setting up companies here, they start to look south and say gee, we could do this in the U.S., pay our employees the same amount and they'd have more take-home pay".
