During the recent economic crisis British Columbia prospered while the global economy lost jobs.
British Columbia has attracted high value jobs with some of the lowest tax rates in North America for businesses and individuals.
Vancouver False Creek is home to many knowledge workers whose jobs are highly portable and subject to global competition.

I am dedicated to ensuring that personal and business tax rates remain competitive so high value jobs, workers and businesses stay in B.C.
