So what? We can play that game with every party. 

 

It depends on how much additional buying consumers will make. I'd certainly look at an a car purchase a year early. Or accelerate a home reno.

 

I do think this is a prelude to bringing the HST back, which would bring in a couple of billion from the feds to harmonize so that would claw back some of the lost revenue. And make so much sense for small businesses in BC in particular. 

 

The fear mongering over cuts to services is expected, but once people realize the $1,200 savings and chance to save on big ticket items this might actually get some traction.

 

IN a covid world, being faced with ever shrinking savings and less than secure income.  what is $1200?

 

I fondly recall klein bucks being talked about in the same manner

1/2 a kids tuition to BCIT. A few months interest on your maxed credit card. 

 

And then maybe 5 or 6 grand on a new truck or minivan.

Sorry....but with almost 50% of the nation less than $200 a month from outright bankruptcy how do you expect people will be buying new trucks or minivans again with wages and income being so uncertain right now?

We'll have to agree to disagree at that point. I will have to say that the belief that people will rush out and purchase things like trucks or minivans due to a loss of PST (but no loss of PDI or other fees in vehicle purchases) is certainly a pipe dream that is about as likely to happen as Horgan is to call off the election.

well, if nothing else its populist and can't be used to claim a benefit to 'big business' :lol:

 

money in your pocket is always a powerful thing. Is it enough to tilt the votes? who knows. 

 

I still think a protest Green vote is the biggest threat to Horgan.

If you're speaking of Wilkinson and his party.  No.  I am not a supporter and they are not liberals in anything but name

they want to reduce it the following year and moving forward after that as well to 3% 'until the economy recovers' whatever that means.

 

and you really don't think services get cut in response to that?

 

Straw man says hi!

I can see younger voters giving it a pass. It also really helps the lib/con side as they are better at getting their vote out. 

 

I can also see a lot of people choosing Green being annoyed at this sham election call.

Hi. 

 

No it doesn't follow that services will be cut if Wilkinson is willing to carry a deficit. 

 

I guess you can call him a liar, but he says he won't be cutting services.

Received my mail-in voting package today. 
 

It’s a write in ballot; no biggie. 
 

However, the full slate of candidates haven’t been posted yet and may not be done so until Oct. 2, as per Elections BC. 
 

It was super easy to register, request and receive. I highly encourage people to get their ballots mailed to them. It’ll save time and keep you out of the crowds around the height of the second wave.

I am thinking of writing Ronald McDonald in my ballot and mailing it in.......

 

Looks like the next BC Premier will be a clown not matter how the election turns out.....

 

Do i vote for a party that sells out BC to foreign real estate speculators... or do i vote for a party that is anti science / anti mask in the fight against covid.... ?

 

Such a tough election this time.

It would certainly be ironic for a voter to clown around with their vote/ballot whilst  calling the Premier a clown. Hopefully, you’re able to avoid that error in judgement.
