British Columbia's election heats up as campaign nears halfway mark

Ellis Copeland | 25 April, 2017, 13:10

Vancouver is home to a number of battleground ridings, and have flipped between the Liberals and New Democrats the last few elections.

Then the NDP confirmed that its two senior election staffers, campaign director Bob Dewar and deputy director Glen Sanford, are contract employees of the United Steelworkers, hired and assigned to run the campaign.

I suggest a good read is the book Christy Clark - behind the smile, where you can learn that she was from a middle-class working family that went through life trials and tribulations. "But the thing is, does the donation change your decision?"

A spokesperson from Weyerhaeuser was not immediately available for comment.

She says the party is committed to standing up for B.C.in softwood lumber talks with the US and making sure taxes are low to keep the province competitive.

That would be news to Brady, considering his public proclamations and the fact that Garoppolo only has one year left on his deal. I don't know, but Nate - a jumbo tight end - and he played right tackle, which he never played before, in his rookie year.


As the May 9th election approaches, B.C. NDP supporters are feeling confident. Horgan has said an NDP government would ban big money from politics, but in the meantime his party must play by the current rules if it hopes to compete with the Liberals.

He later released a statement blasting the NDP over reports top B.C. NDP staff are having their salaries paid by the United Steelworkers. "But I'm not going to put two hands behind my back when the most corporate-funded party in B.C. history is raking in money".

Elsewhere, B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark made an appearance at the Vancouver Sun Run, while Green leader Andrew Weaver took part in a beach cleanup on Quadra Island.

"Christy Clark's government has overseen the loss of 30,000 forestry jobs while filling her pockets with cash donated by the same companies who have been throwing BC workers out in the street", said Horgan.

The BC Green Party is only one of the three major parties which turns down corporate and union contributions.
