The provincial budget is nothing to write home about.
That’s according to Nanaimo MLA Leonard Krog who says the province may have spent an additional 2 point 4 billion dollars on core services like health, education and the natural resource sectors but that money wasn’t all well-spent….
Krog says the budget has a small surplus but residents of BC are paying more for MSP premiums, higher ICBC rates, increased hydro costs, tuition is up and there’s no decent public childcare province-wide.
