BC election: Key developments from Day Three on the campaign trail

John and Ellie Horgan

Clark said the Liberal campaign formula to earn voter support is job creation, 220,000 jobs created over the past four years; the lowest unemployment rate in Canada; and prudent fiscal management of government.

"I think that's our plan, it's responsible. We're going to make different choices - choices that help families and make their lives better".

Green Party Leader Andrew Weaver is in Victoria today.

"If it ends up being, five years from now, $17 an hour then so be it".

"If they're not paying taxes in British Columbia, they're not growing our province", Horgan said. "It's our top priority when we come into this campaign".

He says that would make the premiums fairer, while at the same time keeping a vital revenue strain.

She reiterated the Liberals' promise of cutting medical service premiums in half on January 1 and eventually eliminating it all together.

Liberal leader Christy Clark started the day campaigning in her home riding of West Kelowna, dishing out pancakes to local residents.

Judy Darcy, the NDP incumbent in New Westminster, said the province now has a "patchwork system" of tolling and the Liberal government's strategy is not working.

In regards to claims that people already living in the province still can't find housing, Clark says it's municipalities' responsibility to solve the problem.

"If you're buying property, and you're benefiting from all the public services, and your property is going up in value, because of the good schools and hospitals and services here - that's fundamentally unfair", Mr. Eby said.

- Clark criticized the NDP's announced rental subsidy plan, saying it could line the pockets of wealthy tenants who may live in penthouses in downtown Vancouver.

"If they're not telling us the truth, I can't be held to their numbers", Horgan said when asked whether an NDP government would promise not to introduce any additional taxes other than those in the platform.

In March, the government changed the tax to exempt several thousand worldwide residents on provincial work permits and agreed to provide refunds to some people who had already paid the tax.
