British Columbia election is in the final stretch

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 20 Oct, 2020 07:02 PM
  • British Columbia election is in the final stretch

B.C.'s political leaders are campaigning in Metro Vancouver in the final few days of the provincial election.

B.C. Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson defended a news release put out by his party that accused the NDP of trying to suppress the vote by calling an election during a pandemic.

Speaking at a dairy farm in Surrey, Wilkinson says NDP Leader John Horgan's "selfishness" in calling an early election as the province hit a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic shouldn't override the public's right to get out and vote.

Horgan took his campaign to Coquitlam, where he pushed his health-care plans for spending $2.3 billion for construction of hospitals and the hiring of 7,000 workers.

Horgan says when his government took over in 2017, nine in 10 care homes didn't have enough staff to meet the minimum hours for care, which the NDP will change.

Green Leader Sonia Furstenau is in West Vancouver today, where she's expected to unveil her party's plans for economic recovery during and after the pandemic.
