Premier Christy Clark has pledged to continue adjusting income tax so the province gains no net revenue from carbon tax.

The leaders of all the main political parties were out on the hustings yesterday, trying to get out their message and shore up votes ahead of election day on May 9. She needs to be accountable.

Duncan Davies, CEO of Interfor with big lumber production on both sides of the border, puts it in plainer terms: the repeated US actions are a "simple shake-down" by American forest industry interests. "It's the time when British Columbians will really tune into the campaign".

"Aman Singh has what it takes to build a better BC", said BC NDP Leader John Horgan.

"Not at all", he said.

She said that in 2010, the Cowichan Valley Regional District Hospital Board began setting aside funds for a new hospital.

NDP deputy director Glen Sanford said the ad fits into the NDP's theme of showing how real people are impacted by the Liberals.

Higgins shook the premier's hand and said, "I would never vote for you because." and was cut off by Clark who told her, "You don't have to". She added that in her view, province-wide and in the Kootenays, the number one concern of voters is job protection and job creation.

The New Democrats hope the support of Berman, Pedersen, Smith and Olewiler will damage the Liberals' credibility on environmental issues while attracting voters who are considering the Green Party. "It is clear that Ms. Kayfish is still grieving from the loss of her brother", the party said in a statement. The only proposed change to provincial sales tax in this election is the B.C. Liberal pledge to remove PST from all business electricity bills.

Clark has apologized in the legislature for the botched firing, and on April 11 offered to meet Kayfish and apologize in person. The NDP has not won the riding since 1991, but Horgan said he thinks they can be successful there.

"It gives people a chance to connect with her one on one". "It started before the last election and it's still going on".

Kayfish said she's not sure an apology would suffice anymore. He said communities outside Metro Vancouver should also pay tolls as users of major infrastructure projects.

This week, Clark appeared to backtrack on the incident, telling a C-FOX radio host that in retrospect she wished she'd stopped and spoken to Higgins.

Leo Gerard says his members know he's been fighting for them on both sides of the border.

Clark drew big cheers when she said she would work with Ashton to bring a Canadian wine centre of excellence to Penticton.

"If you are exporting cherries or apples or if you're in the wine business, in the lumber business, people know we need a fighter who is going to stand up for jobs with the Americans".
