Jobs for premier’s hirees

Christy Clark created another new government bureaucracy with the “BC Jobs Plan” (more than $25 million) employing a 17-member board of directors.

Now she is blowing $15 million in tax dollars bragging about the jobs plan with expensive partisan propaganda TV and radio ads.

Every time I hear another insulting ad it makes me sick as the B.C. Liberals care not one iota about creating a job in B.C., it’s all about making 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 the Chinese to exploit our mining resources and import cheap foreign labour.

She exported our jobs to Germany for three standard steel-hulled ferries that our shipyards could have built.

She is exporting jobs to Holland for a new $25-million SeaBus when the last three SeaBuses were B.C.-shipyard built.

BC Hydro is exporting contracts to Alberta and Texas for transmission line and other jobs.

The Liberals blew $1 billion in borrowed tax dollars on smart meters 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.

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 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.
