NEWS RELEASE · 15th April 2013
BC Conservative Party
The 2013 BC Liberal Platform promises to lower small business taxes from 2.5% to 1.5% by 2017/18. The 2009 BC Liberal Platform promised to lower small business taxes from 2.5% to be the "lowest rate in Canada", which would have been 0%, to match Manitoba, by April 1, 2012.
"In Budget 2012, Christy Clark cancelled the small business tax cut promised in 2009. Now the Liberals are making the same promise again, as if they expect British Columbians to believe them this time," said John Cummins, Leader of the BC Conservatives.
"As the saying goes, 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.' British Columbia's small business owners will not be fooled by Christy Clark this time. The BC Conservatives offer small business owners an alternative to the unstable tax and spend policies of the Liberals and NDP," said Cummins.
Take a look at Canada and the World

Buisiness in BC should be breathing a sigh of relief they are in a Province in a Country that has done so well while rest of World is falling apart financially. I look at all the business activity in Terrace in spite of their Councils, MLA and MP's lack of support and have to give Credit to the over all financial health of British Columbia To Governing BC Liberals. Terrace voters who voted in anti pipeliners should realise they are also anti Corporate and anti development with their stand against increase in gaming tables. They have no problems saying no to increased gaming tables because as said,they do not want to feed "gambling adiction" but 10 minutes later talk about their plans for Co-op site, turning it into Brew Pub. So they have no problem feeding peoples alchohol addiction? The difference is gaming is Corporate and no socialist's can support that. Same as BCNDP, cannot support for Profit business's.
