Another day, another study to stall NDP action

VICTORIA (May 29, 2019) – John Horgan and the NDP are at it again— more studies, no action.

“The NDP promised to address cell phone bills in its February Throne Speech, yet waited until the very end of May to announce a useless survey on the issue,” says Jas Johal, BC Liberal Co-Critic for Jobs, Trade and Technology and MLA for Richmond-Queensborough. “They’ve said the survey will help give them insight into what actions the Province can take, which tells me they simply don’t know what they’re doing.”

John Horgan and the NDP’s failure to come up with ideas and take action just adds to the affordability woes of British Columbians.

“Whether its costly cell phone bills, skyrocketing gas prices, or rising ICBC and hydro rates— life isn’t getting any easier for hard-working British Columbians,” says Greg Kyllo, BC Liberal Co-Critic for Jobs, Trade and Technology and MLA for Shuswap. “Affordability was a key promise made by John Horgan and the NDP, and all they’ve shown they know how to do is order study after study. They are clearly stalling, and British Columbians can see right through it.”

Johal and Kyllo also note that cell phone billing is a matter of federal jurisdiction, and the CRTC is already doing this work. They say John Horgan continues to waste taxpayer dollars on expensive studies to create the illusion he is doing something.
