Christy Clark created another new government. bureaucracy, the BC Jobs Plan, in September of 2011, with $25-plus-million borrowed, employing a 17member board of directors (more crony friends).
Now she is blowing $15 million - borrowed dollars - bragging about the "jobs program" with expensive partisan propaganda ads on TV and radio.
The ads are insulting. The BC Liberals care not about creating jobs in B.C., it's about political points.
Clark brags about "skills and training" in the jobs program, but training suffers as they look to outside contractors.
She imposed a government-wide public hiring freeze, then hired three more executive advisers for her office.
She made a deal with China to exploit our mining resources and import cheap foreign labour.
Jobs were exported to Germany for three standard, steel-hulled ferries that our shipyards could have built.
Jobs are exported to Holland for a new $25-million SeaBus, when the last three SeaBus's were B.C.-shipyard built.
BC Hydro is exporting contracts to Alberta and Texas for transmission lines and other jobs.
The BC Liberals blew a billion borrowed dollars on SmartMeters, with outside contractors to eliminate the student meter-reader jobs.
Now it's too bothersome to train policing jobs, so they are looking to import them from Europe to work on transportation.
We are losing thousands of bright young people migrating out of B.C., looking for jobs elsewhere, as we undermine them with cheap, imported labour.
We need to start building a new centre-right party now, and get rid of these BC Liberal destroyers.
Common sense dictates that our job spin-offs should circulate within B.C.'s economy. The inept Liberals are low in the polls, because we are learning how they have ruined our province as more disastrous stories follow.
