Liberal government doesn’t care, says NDP

Victoria: Statistics Canada numbers show the Liberal government continues to fail on private sector job creation as the province drops back to last place in Canada since their taxpayer-funded jobs campaign began, say the New Democrats. B.C. lost another 8,500 private sector jobs last month, and the Liberal government doesn’t seem to be too concerned despite promises more than two years ago to boost private sector jobs,” said New Democrat jobs critic Harry Bains.” Statistics Canada numbers show that since the Liberal government last sat in the B.C. Legislature, British Columbia has dropped 21,400 full-time jobs. “The Liberal government hasn’t really had a plan for jobs at all, except to put all their eggs in one basket, hoping that one day the yet-to-exist LNG industry will solve all problems,” said New Democrat finance critic Mike Farnworth.
