An economic recovery that includes everyone—not just those at the top

We are two weeks into the election campaign, and the choice before British Columbians could not be clearer.

Andrew Wilkinson has doubled down on his support for over $3 billion in giveaways to big businesses and wealthy speculators. His plan hands the biggest benefits to those who need it least and makes ordinary people pay for it. Either with higher costs for car insurance, rent, medical premiums, hydro, and tuition fees. Or with cuts to the services we rely on more than ever, like health care.

We can’t afford to go back to the old BC Liberal way. Not right now.

John Horgan has a different plan. He will continue helping people and families get through the pandemic and build an economic recovery that includes everyone—not just those at the top. Over the last few weeks, John has laid out just some of the ways he will keep BC moving forward:

  • Delivering better health care, closer to home, with new hospitals and urgent primary care centres in every corner of BC.
  • Improving long-term care and home care to keep seniors healthy, safe and living with the dignity they deserve.
  • Making life more affordable with more support for students and ensuring MSP fees never come back.

John understands that British Columbians are worried about their health and their livelihoods as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, he will host a virtual town hall with hundreds of supporters from across BC and make an important announcement to keep people healthy and safe in the future.
