BC Liberals leader Andrew Wilkinson was in Campbell River while BC NDP leader John Horgan was in Coquitlam this morning, for their continuing election campaigns.

Wilkinson said that promised PST cut would reduce the cost of heavy machinery and in this way, help forestry.

Responding to a question on Strathcona Park tent city, Wilkinson said the people shouldn’t feel under siege from street crime and disorder in their community. The situation has gotten worse under NDP and dealing with it is the top priority of any incoming government, Wilkinson said.

Responding to a question about protest in Strathcona park from concerned residents, BC NDP leader John Horgan asked them to be patient as the province tries to work through the situation. Housing options are being sought by the province, Horgan said.

Horgan also promised that a re-elected BC NDP government will build a modern new middle school and high school on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam.

The concept plan for high school and middle school is in its final stages, Horgan announced.

"Families on Burke Mountain have waited years for new schools because the old BC Liberal government put the interests of their wealthy and well-connected friends before kids," said Horgan.
