Liberals blast NDP's promise of yearly $400 renter's rebate in BC

Our plan will create good jobs that grow the economy, make life more affordable for families, and fix the services people count on, all with a balanced budget.

John Horgan says as premier he would introduce an annual $400 renter's rebate if the NDP wins the election on May 9.

Meanwhile, B.C. Liberal Leader Christy Clark spent the morning campaigning with a pancake breakfast in her home riding of Westside-Kelowna, where she took a shot at the NDP's plan to eliminate bridge tolls. There are no tolls on the Sea-to-Sky Highway. Horgan asked about the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges.

- Horgan says he's already having meetings about how to distribute legal marijuana, including talks with liquor outlets, craft brewers, pharmacies and dispensaries.

Runaway housing prices have been an issue in parts of British Columbia and the NDP would bring in a speculation tax that would apply to all out-of-province property owners. It would also increase capital spending by $7 billion over three years.

Meanwhile, the Liberals' Mike De Jong is accusing the NDP of planning "pledging a massive increase in spending".

Elon Musk: Tesla will unveil a semi-truck in September
This put the company ahead in market capitalization of much larger vehicle companies such as Ford and General Motors. The Tesla Semi, for cargo transport, was first teased in Musk's second " master plan " released a year ago .

- With the federal government expected to announce plans Thursday to legalizing marijuana, Clark said she wants assurances organized crime is shut out of the pot business and that marijuana stays out of the hands of children.

"Here we've got hallway medicine emerging", said Horgan, citing the story of a senior who laid on a bed in the Eagle Ridge Hospital hallway for 36 hours. "It's nearly platform by camouflage".

"It's the platform of a party that has had experience in government and wants the opportunity to do it again and is not going to oversell and is not going to make ridiculous goals that can not be kept", he said.

"We are playing politics (that) could be significantly damaging to our transportation system based on these very populist-type proposals", he said.

Lorraine Brett, who is running in New Westminster for the B. C. Liberals, said her party will continue to work with the mayors and support the 10 year plan.

"Certainly it's hard for one to be working for our government and then also supporting candidates who would be opposed to the successful construction of the Kinder Morgan pipeline".
