Letter to the Editor: NDP’s Horgan hasn’t delivered on party’s jobs plan

Letter to the Editor about John Horgan's promise of a job plan.


John Horgan became B.C. NDP leader on May 4, 2015.

His main objective was to deliver on his promise of a jobs plan.

This was his opportunity to set a new path and show he could actually come up with a plan that supports economic growth, but that has not happened.

He hasn’t been able to tell his party how he would create jobs and only has mentioned a list of spending habits and old ideas recycled from the 1990’s.

He has the reputation now of being Dr. No.  No to the first 600 jobs in the first 100 days of Site C.  No to the 10,000 jobs over next ten years at Site C.  No to expanding mining.  No to LNG.

While the NDP party may have thought they were regenerating with a new leader, it seems only the face is different.

John Horgan claims his NDP want to focus on skills training, but omits job creation ideas.

The NDP plan is to train people for jobs anywhere else but B.C.

A major disappointment is Horgan being unable to deliver on his promise to lay out a plan to deal with energy, thus as per Mike Smyth comments in the Vancouver Province news, NDP MLA’s Rob Fleming and  David Eby, are sitting at the gates to try for the title of B.C. NDP leader.
