Within a day of being sworn in as Premier of British Columbia, Christy Clark has decided to raise the minimum wage. I'm sure that will be very popular with the less than 5% of the work force who earns minimum wage, and the other people who will be fired because their job is no longer cost effective for the small business owner at a higher price point. Ironically, Christy's first major policy announcement is one of the top priorities of the NDP. This is a slippery slope, trying to out flank the Dippers on the left. What NDP policy will she choose next?
Come on BC Conservative Party, find a quality candidate for leader! Mr Cummins and Mr Strahl would be excellent selections.
