NDP platform fully costed, says Comox Valley candidate

The BC NDP’s new platform takes practical steps to help B.C. create economic opportunities, says Comox Valley candidate Kassandra Dycke

The BC NDP’s new fully-costed platform takes practical steps to help British Columbians create economic opportunities, unlike the empty BC Liberal platform that provides little hope, Comox Valley NDP candidate Kassandra Dycke says in a news release.

“The BC NDP platform is now out, and it contains practical policies that promote economic opportunities, protect our environment, improve our education and health systems, and give our young people the skills training they need to get ahead,” Dycke said.

“The BC Liberal platform contains hardly any new ideas, a jobs plan that has already resulted in thousands of lost jobs, and a promise of a debt-free government that flies in the face of growing debt under the BC Liberals,” said Dycke.

The final parts of the NDP platform, which is fully costed through the BC NDP’s fiscal plan, were announced by BC NDP leader Adrian Dix. The deficits in the NDP fiscal plan do not exceed the deficits proposed by the BC Liberals.

“Our platform sets out practical and fully costed ideas, because we understand that in today’s uncertain economy, we must be responsible about the choices we make,” Dycke added.
