BC ELECTION: NDP leader juggling MLA duties with MLA role

On the campaign trail in Burnaby, B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan announced an NDP government will commit funding for playgrounds and supplies for districts around the province.

That was the message from BC Liberal leader Christy Clark when she made a campaign stop with candidate Scott Hamilton at Tasty Indian Bistro on April 19.

The debate, hosted by News 1130 and moderated by Bill Good, had a few testy moments, as Horgan frequently talked over Clark and became frustrated at points, including when Clark said his party's platform has a $6 billion funding gap.

The BC NDP will build urgent care centres to improve access for people to front-line health care providers, says BC NDP leader John Horgan.

Horgan says in today's debate, he'll stick to ways his party would make life more affordable for British Columbians.

- Green Leader Andrew Weaver campaigned in Kamloops where he released the party's strategy for sustainably managing the province's resources.

In response, Clark said Horgan wouldn't deliver the NDP's daycare plan until most kids in daycare now "have a driver's license".

"We're going to make sure people get the health care services they count on".

Horgan says his promises are affordable and the costs associated with them and the impact on the province's finances are based on figures in the Liberal's spring budget. He said it was not his style and found the exchanges between Horgan and Clark "disrespectful and rude".

"It is really hard for first time home buyers in this market to scrape together that down payment they need", said Clark.

On the Site C dam, Horgan has vowed to review the project, while Weaver said the Green Party would halt the project. It was a departure from the positive, take-the-high-road approach adopted by Horgan's predecessor in the last election, which the New Democrats lost despite a large lead in the polls at the campaign's outset.

Mental health and addictions prompted another sharp exchange, with Horgan repeatedly interrupting Clark.

The analysis does not include the NDP's revenue assumptions or 40 additional uncosted promises, de Jong said in a statement.

Clark says she would lift the limit to "at least" 19, the same age when it's legal to purchase alcohol in B.C.

Weaver said a Green government would keep the bridge tolls in place, saying that user the user pay principle is "good public policy".

"Their platform creates not a hole in our budget, it is a crater, a giant, smoking crater of a hole to the tune of billions of dollars that they are going to fill with your money in the form of new taxes", she said. "I think most people would rather have their local craft beer".
