Christy Clark’s government is a government without a heart.
She doesn’t care that kids can’t go to school because there is not enough money going into education. She doesn’t care that the poor can’t get legal representation because there is not enough money going into legal aid. She doesn’t care that the sick are left lying in beds in hospital hallways because not enough money is going into health care. She does not care that the B.C. civil forfeiture office is preying on the weak and innocent in order to funnel money into the government’s coffers.
Her only concern is that taxes will not be raised.
The B.C. government would be able to balance its budget and still have money for essential programs if taxes were increased on the wealthiest 20 per cent of British Columbians and on profitable corporations. But that Christy Clark is not willing to do.
Christy Clark is determined to protect the rich and powerful at all cost and let the powerless fend for themselves.
