(Vancouver) Addressing inequality in BC should be the top priority for the 2001 Budget, the CCPA will tell the BC Legislature's Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services at 4:45pm today. The Committee is in Vancouver to hear submissions from the public about how the government should deal with its projected surplus.
The CCPA notes that stronger growth this year (and into 2001) is good news for workers and businesses, as well as the government's fiscal situation. The brief recommends planning for a third consecutive balanced budget for the 2001/02 fiscal year.
