Liberal leadership candidate plans remain a mystery

Public Eye On Line

Three weeks from now, BC Liberal Party members will elect their next leader and our next premier. But, so far, the three lead contenders for that job have said little about their plans for the government’s biggest spending ministries. Those ministries – which are responsible for health services, education, housing, social development, advanced education, labour market development and children and family development – had expenses totaling $25.21 billion in the past fiscal year.

But, according to a review of their platforms, George Abbott, Christy Clark and Kevin Falcon have spent most of the leadership campaign talking about economic and accountability issues.
