NEWS RELEASE · 7th October 2011
BC Conservative Party
Today on the Bill Good Show, Premier Clark stated that if Mr. Cummins wants to challenge the BC Liberals, he should run for the NDP.
"This is ridiculous coming from Premier Clark whose policy book looks more and more like it is written by the NDP," said Mr. Cummins. "Perhaps she needs to take a good hard look at her own record this year, and see if perhaps she is in the wrong party."
It's been harder and harder to see the difference between Premier Clark's government and the NDP. They agree on all of the following:
The carbon tax - increased in July, and jacking it up again next year
The gas tax - imposing a new two cent a litre gas tax in the Lower Mainland
Raising the minimum wage, without consultation
Putting special interest groups ahead of those of the majority of British Columbians
Creating a larger and more expensive bureaucracy
Ignoring Senate Reform
Soft on crime
Cutting the number of prosecutors and sheriffs
Funding their parties through special interest donations
Implementing a tax structure that sees the average BC family pay more taxes than any other province west of Quebec
Implementing economic policies that cause more people to leave BC for other provinces than are moving here
Delivering deficit budgets
Putting the interests of the teacher's union ahead of those of parents
Unnecessary to develop strategies to safe guard BC from the economic crisis hitting the world
"Every British Columbian deserves a real choice in the next provincial election. As you can see, Premier Clark and the NDP share the same vision for British Columbia. I am here with the new BC Conservatives to provide a common sense, mainstream choice, for all British Columbians."

Either way, may I suggest you get your facts straight.
