Six months after the BC Liberals doubled down on their record by picking longtime cabinet minister Kevin Falcon, they’re trying to hide his record of working for the wealthiest while making life harder for everyone else.
As a senior BC Liberal cabinet minister for 12 years, Kevin Falcon:
- Handed out tax breaks to the top income earners;
- Hiked costs like MSP Premiums, bridge tolls, and Hydro rates;
- Cut hospital budgets, growing waitlists for surgeries and MRIs;
- Raided ICBC for millions while charging drivers more;
MLA Ravi Kahlon:
“The BC Liberals can change their name, but they can’t hide Kevin Falcon’s record of working for people at the very top while making life harder for everyone else. He was a top player in a government that gave huge tax breaks to the top tax bracket and made people pay for it with higher fees and cuts to schools and hospitals. He stands by those choices today and he would do it again.”
