April 15, 2013 – VANCOUVER – Christy Clark unveiled the BC Liberal Election Platform on Monday, but gave British Columbians little hope of a brighter future if the Liberals are re-elected in May.

“Christy Clark’s platform is full of empty promises that won’t fix any of the problems the Liberals got us into,” said John Cummins, Leader of the BC Conservatives. “When you double the debt, run deficit budgets, and introduce new taxes, British Columbians know they can’t trust you to deal with the economy and create jobs. What the Premier said today simply isn’t believable, based on the Liberal track record.”

With both the Liberals and the NDP committed to raising taxes and running massive deficits, the BC Conservatives are the only choice for voters looking to escape the never ending tax-and-spend cycle of the past 20 years.

“It’s getting hard to spot the differences between the NDP and the Liberals,” Cummins said. “As far as I can tell, the only difference between the two is the picture of the leader they use on their documents.”

By taking smart steps like balancing the budget and eliminating the carbon tax, the BC Conservatives will bring high-paying jobs and more opportunity to British Columbia.
