So Madame Premier ... given the facts ... would you now apologize for misrepresenting the true state of finances in our province?

Why people would ever try to accuse me of fudging and miss-representing figures, regarding the ACTUAL DEBT being racked up by this BC Liberal government, is beyond me. I have said, and will continue to say -- the BC Liberal government, being led by Premier Christy Clark, is LYING to us.

Despite spending millions of taxpayer dollars on partisan advertising, trying to convince us otherwise, the facts speak for themselves.  These are NOT numbers I have made up -- these figures that follow are directly from the BC Ministry of Finance.


Budget and Fiscal Plan ... for the years 2006 / 2007 through to 2008 / 2009

February 21, 2006 -- Ministry of Finance (http://www.bcbudget.gov.bc.ca/2006/bfp/Summary2.htm)  

Budget Estimate of debt (in billions) for the year:
2006 - 07  ... $36,590
2007 - 08 ... $38,175
2008 - 09 ... $39,800

 
Budget and Fiscal Plan ... for the years 2009 / 2010 through to 2011 / 2012
February 17th, 2009 -- Ministry of Finance (http://www.bcbudget.gov.bc.ca/2009/bfp/2009_Budget_Fiscal_Plan.pdf)

Budget Estimate of debt (in billions) for the year:
2009 - 10  ... $40,471
2010 -  11 ...  $44,203
2011 - 12  ... $47,215

 
Budget and Fiscal Plan ... for the years 2012 / 2013 through to 2014 / 2015
February 21st, 2012 -- Ministry of Finance
(http://www.bcbudget.gov.bc.ca/2012/bfp/2012_Budget_Fiscal_Plan.pdf )

Budget Estimate of debt (in billions) for the year:
2012 - 13 ... $57,603
2013 - 14 ... $62,714
2014 - 15 ... $66,354

So Madame Premier ... given the facts ... would you now apologize for misrepresenting the true state of finances in our province? Will you also now STOP running highly partisan ads cheering the obviously questionable financial management of our province by your government -- given the fact it is NOT the truth?

Finally --- given past performance, what on earth would ever convince us that there is any hope you will be able to present a balanced budget for the coming year --- any more than the BC NDP were able to do in the past?

Only one party stands for common sense government, and smarter government spending -- that's the BC Conservatives.
