BC party leaders slamming opponents' spending promises on campaign trail

Horgan said the $400 annual credit would apply to each rental unit, so multiple renters sharing a single residence wouldn't receive a cumulative benefit. "Not a place that's half filled, and so expensive that people can't stick around".

Premier Christy Clark started off the 2017 election campaign Tuesday with a visit to Government House to dissolve the legislature and begin a 28-day run to voting day on May 9. I'm committed to that, I'm committed to living within our means.

"You might remember she said there was going to be a $100-billion prosperity fund".

British Columbia New Democrat leader says it's high time government offered a helping hand to renters in the province.

Also in Vancouver Wednesday, B.C. Green Party leader Andrew Weaver unveiled a plan to increase income assistance, disability assistance and shelter allowance by 10 per cent a year, starting this fall and continuing for five years.

"If there is not enough rental housing in the province, it's partly because we still need cities to get to work and zone more rental housing". "That funding, overnight, appears to have been significantly reduced or completely eliminated and, unless the provincial parties are prepared to pay the entire cost of that bridge, I don't see how we're going to be able to move forward with that project".

Frustrated With Knicks Dysfunction, Kristaps Porzingis Skipped His Exit Meeting With Team
The good news for Knicks fans is that regardless of what happens with Anthony, Porzingis can't choose to leave anytime soon. Anthony, who turns 33 years old this offseason, has talked openly in the past about wanting to win in NY .

The NDP expects to finance its campaign commitments by reversing a Liberal tax cut to people who earn more than $150,000 a year, hiking the corporate tax rate and putting a price on housing speculation.

"Our new spends on capital will lead to a one per cent increase in our debt-to-GDP ratio, which will still leave us in the same league as Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba".

In a statement, Liberal candidate Mike de Jong says there's no way for the NDP to balance the budget, which he describes as reckless.

Taking questions at Government House, Clark said her party's platform is the only one that is costed and won't require tax increases.

He says it would cost $4-billion per year if brought in, and again raising the spectre of B.C. losing its AAA credit rating.
