Good jobs and a sustainable economy

John Horgan and the BC New Democrat government believe that a strong economy is when everyone is doing better. It’s time to build a sustainable economy with good-paying, stable jobs for people in communities across British Columbia.

The BC Liberals contributed to an economy that benefited those at the top, and where the rest of British Columbian’s were struggling to get by.  Tens of thousands of jobs in forestry communities around our province were lost under their mismanagement, and raw log exports increased at an unprecedented pace.  In 2013, The BC Liberals focused much of their mandate on creating an industry for LNG and they were unable to deliver a single major LNG project in that time.

After 16 years of neglect, John Horgan and the BC New Democrat government will take action to create tens of thousands of new, sustainable jobs and will fight for a fair deal on our softwood lumber. They will also assist in the growth of the low-carbon economy by boosting the tech and creative industries and will make protecting our environment a priority.
