NEWS RELEASE · 5th May 2013
The BC Liberal “Fact-Free BC” campaign today is promising that if they’re elected they’ll make parents wait until 2024 before receiving any help with the high costs of education.
FACT: The BC Liberal plan is a one-time $1,200 RESP grant that would be available to qualifying families starting in 2024.
FACT: The BC NDP plan helps students and children now, and doesn’t force parents to wait until 2024.
FACT: The BC NDP would repurpose resources from the BC Liberal plan to increase the number of childcare spaces and to save BC families $2,000 per year on childcare starting now, not in 2024.
FACT: To help post-secondary education students, the BC NDP will introduce needs-based grants available to qualifying students, not just once, but each and every year of study. And not in 2024 - Now !
The choice in this campaign has never been clearer: more of the same from the BC Liberals means parents wait until 2024 to get help. Change for the better means BC parents get help now.

They don't think - That's the point - if you believe the magic wabbits you might get a carrot but not until.....you fill in the blanks. Sounds like blackmail and smells like bullshit.
