BC Budget

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Finance Minister Carole James says some of the big promises the New Democrats made on the campaign trail last spring could appear in February’s budget, but first the party will have to discuss logistics with several groups — including the Green party. Green Leader Andrew Weaver says his party isn’t forcing their platform on the New Democrats and the upcoming talks show how minority governments can work. The N-D-P and Greens voted together in June to defeat the reigning Liberals in a non-confidence vote after the May 9th election failed to produce a clear winner. The two parties have also signed an agreement that the Greens will support the New Democrats in confidence votes in the legislature.
