B.C.'s job plan is clearly working

It should be obvious to practically everyone that, statistically speaking, one month’s job stats taken in isolation do not make for a trend. In order to spot a trend, one has to look at year-over-year stats.

And when I look at the year-over-year job stats for B.C. I see 36,500 full-time positions gained in B.C. since September 2011. These full-time positions replaced 27,800 part-time positions over the same period.

If one goes back a bit further to February of last year, more than 78,800 full-time positions have been gained in B.C. replacing 32,000 part-time positions.

The job trend BC is therefore very obvious: Full-time positions are replacing part-time positions in significant numbers.   Premier Christy Clark’s effort to create jobs is working
