Money talk

On Saturday, provincial New Democrat leader Carole James said she wanted to hear from British Columbians about the changes needed to "make our economy grow" - promising to include "concerned business leaders" as part of that discussion. In fact, New Democrat caucus's economic policy committee - chaired by legislator John Horgan - has already been working in that direction, holding a series of listening session since the legislature got back in session. Among those who have spoken to the committee: Canadian Community Economic Development Network executive director Rupert Downing, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives British Columbia director Seth Klein, Central 1 Credit Union chief economist Helmut Pastrick and consulting economist Marvin Shaffer. Business Council of British Columbia executive vice-president Jock Finlayson was also scheduled to speak to NDP MLAs. But ferry troubles scrubbed that engagement.
